Faculty organised international placements

Monash University and the Faculty of Law have made a strategic commitment to the internationalisation of educational opportunities for our students. As such the Law School has developed a number of placements that will enhance both the personal and professional development of our students.

These are placements negotiated, advertised and managed by the Faculty of Law and developed via a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the organisation concerned. Students will be required to apply to the Faculty (or directly to the internship host) and meet a set of selection criteria which has been negotiated between the Faculty and the organisation involved. The application process may also involve an interview with the Associate Dean International and/or other appropriate members of staff. Please note that all costs for flights, accommodation, and other living expenses are to be funded by the student.
