Monash Law International Study Programs - Prato and Malaysia

Gain an international perspective

Would you like to further enhance your law degree? You can enrol in one, or both, of these exciting international study programs offered by the Faculty of Law. Each year, Monash Law students have the opportunity to study at the Monash Prato Centre in Italy and the Monash Malaysia campus in Kuala Lumpur. These programs offer a selection of elective subjects with an international and comparative law focus and are taught by distinguished academics from Australia and around the world.

In a globalised world, lawyers are increasingly expected to be able to solve transnational legal problems and to utilise opportunities beyond their home jurisdictions. By providing a multicultural and international setting for teaching and learning, these programs give you the opportunity to learn from different legal traditions, systems and procedures, allowing you to gain skills and perspectives that will prepare you for your future career.

The Monash Global Campus Intensives (MGCIs) are a new Monash global offering launching in Winter (June-July), 2022 at Prato (Italy), with additional units planned for semester two, 2022.

The Faculty of Law is planning to offer one unit in Prato in Winter 2022, and two units in each of Semester 2 (October) and Summer A (November/December) 2022. The Faculty is also exploring the possibility of offering units in Malaysia during Summer A, 2022.

The units will be international and/or comparative elective law units. Information about the specific units to be offered and their precise timing will be released through Monash Abroad as soon as the details are confirmed, which is likely to be in early 2022.  In the meantime, if you wish to express your interest in doing the winter unit, complete the Monash Abroad Expression of Interest form by 30 November and you will be advised when the application form is available.
