Completion of an undergraduate program (or equivalent) at an approved Australian institution.
The Master of Legal Administration offers students with a non-law undergraduate degree the opportunity to attain postgraduate qualifications in law. Students may complete a generalist degree or elect to specialise in a particular area of law, combined with up to four postgraduate subjects from other disciplines.
The Master of Legal Administration comprises 12 subjects:
Compulsory Law Subjects (4)
- Advanced Legal Reasoning, Research and Writing
- Australian Legal System
- Principles of Contractual Liability
- Principles of Tortious Liability
- Criminal Law and Procedure A
Law Electives (4)
Students must choose four subjects from the list of postgraduate law subjects.
General Electives (4)
Students in the Master of Legal Administration may also undertake additional law electives or take up to four postgraduate subjects from other disciplines, such as Business, Humanities, Social Sciences or Communication and Media.
This degree does not qualify a graduate for admission as a legal practitioner; rather, the program is intended for students from other fields and professions who wish to supplement their knowledge of law in a particular area.
