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 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, Senior Student Programs Officer (International & Internships) and/or other appropriate members of staff.

Student eligibility criteria

  • be enrolled in the Bachelor of Laws (or any Bachelor of Laws double degree) or Postgraduate coursework degree in the Faculty of Law at Monash University and have at least one unit of their law degree to complete at the end of the internship program
  • at the time of application students enrolled in the LLB or JD programs have completed at least one full-time equivalent year of law (48 credit points) and have achieved a minimum credit (60%) average; students enrolled in the LLM (not including the JD) programs have completed at least two units (12 credit points) and have achieved a minimum credit (60%) average.

International student restrictions

International students are not currently permitted to undertake placements during semester due to visa restrictions*. However they may be eligible for placements that fall outside of the semester dates and may therefore apply for funding if they meet the eligibility criteria outlined above.

(*This is a Commonwealth Government policy which is currently under review in consultation between Monash International and the Department of Immigration, Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs)

NOTE: Some placements may have additional application criteria set out by the host organisation involved. Please see individual placements for details.
