2022 Postgraduate Electives Timetable

Published times and days may be subject to change. Please ensure that you check the timetable prior to the commencement of each unit in which you enrol.

The Faculty reserves the right to withdraw any of the listed units if insufficient teaching resources are available or insufficient student numbers are enrolled in a unit.

All classes are held at 555 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne, VIC 3000 unless otherwise stated.

Re-enrolment for 2022

Re-enrolment for 2022 begins on October 11 2021 and concludes on November 26 2021. Please see the Re-enrolment for coursework students webpage for more information, including steps to re-enrol and important dates.

Please note if you do not receive a transaction number from WES (starting with a U) then you have not been enrolled correctly. If you require help please submit an Ask Monash request.

The Monash postgraduate law program does not follow traditional semesters as it has a different set of units on offer each month. Therefore postgraduate law units have different teaching periods, unit discontinuation and penalty dates from the rest of the University. Do not use the central university census dates. For more information please go to the PG and JD Discontinuation Dates webpage.

If you try to search for a unit in WES using the unit code and nothing is appearing, it is likely full. If a unit is full you can put yourself on the 2022 - Elective Waiting List and if a place becomes available you will be notified by Student Services. The 2022 - Elective Waiting List will become available once the 2022 re-enrolment period has closed.

Assessment General Guidelines

Assessment components for each unit can be found in the unit description in the 2022 handbook.

  • The faculty regards it as a clash when a student has two 3-day take-home examinations due at the same time.
  • The faculty reserves the right to change the assessment dates in consultation with the Chief Examiner.

Assessment due dates will be set by the chief examiner and displayed within the relevant Moodle page. Final assessment tasks will be due within the following timeframes:

Intensive unitWithin 8 weeks after the first day of class
Semi-intensive unitWithin 11 weeks after the first day of class
Semester-long unitWithin 15 weeks after the first day of class
