Welcome from the Dean

Welcome to Monash Law, one of the world’s finest law schools.

As part of Monash University, we’re renowned as a leader in teaching and research, with a practical focus that better prepares our graduates for the opportunities of the future.

Here you’ll learn from some of the very best legal minds, with the facilities and support you’d expect from a top-30 legal University.

Whether you’re studying an undergraduate or masters degree, whether you have plans to work directly in the field of law or apply your skills more broadly, we’re confident you’ll leave here fully equipped to reach your career potential and make a genuine difference in the world.

What to expect

A challenge, for starters. We’ll push you to extend yourself, and to take new perspectives on justice, conflict resolution and problem solving. You’ll develop new talents in legal literacy, analysis, research and advocacy. And you’ll hone your communication, writing, and teamwork skills.

It’s hard work at times. But fulfilling too. A rounded education and a new way of thinking that you can apply to almost any field or endeavour.

Extending you further

A global perspective is crucial. So while Melbourne will be the focal point for your degree, you’ll have the chance to stretch your wings much further. At our Sunway campus in Malaysia and Prato Centre in Italy. On an international internship. Or through an exchange at a number of leading  universities worldwide.

A real-world focus

We believe practical experience is essential to a modern legal education. Through our internship and clinical education programs you’ll work on real cases for real clients with oversight from legal experts. It’s a tangible approach that’s unique to Monash.

Getting involved

Your time here will be about much more than just studying the law. Monash has a wonderful campus culture, with plenty of opportunities to get involved. The Monash Law Students' Society – one of the most active student societies in Australia – is the best places to start.
