Executive Education at Monash Law

Monash Law's Executive Education program helps individuals, legal firms, government departments and other organisations develop the legal skills they need to succeed.

Do you want to develop your skills in a specific legal field? Enrol in one of Monash Law's Executive Education units.

Designed for lawyers and non-lawyers, our Executive Education units offer you the benefits of in-depth legal knowledge without the requirement to take on a full course load or complete assessment.

You'll learn from outstanding academics and leading experts in their fields, as well as international guest lecturers.

Choose to take your classes online or in our dedicated postgraduate Law Chambers in the heart of Melbourne’s legal precinct.

Your choice of unit may also be eligible for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.
