Monash Law masters

For Members of the Malaysian Bar            

Bar Council Malaysia Partnership


Monash Law School is pleased to offer a bursary exclusively to Members of the Malaysian Bar who enrol for the Monash Law Masters as international students for the 2018 intake.

​​The bursary is in the form of a 20% fee relief contribution. 

This collaboration between Bar Council Malaysia and Monash Law School is created to provide Members of the Malaysian Bar with meaningful opportunities for professional growth and development.

There are two options for Members of the Malaysian Bar. Complete your Masters full time in Australia, or complete your Masters part time in Malaysia.

Study in Australia

Malaysia Bar Council members have access to two main study modes. 

The first is to come to our campus in the heart of the legal precinct in Melbourne and complete your Masters full time. 

Find out more about the full time Masters in Australia.

Study part time in Malaysia

Members of the Malaysian Bar can also study part time without ever having to leave Malaysia through a combination on online and on-site delivery. 

Our course advisers will assist you to structure an individual Masters Program that suits your needs, help you access the bursary, and address any queries you may have.

International students are required to complete the “Australian legal process and research” unit as a prerequisite in preparation for any subsequent unit enrolments. 

See our 2018 units below. 

Please note, Malaysian Bar Council Members can also enrol in single units and build a Masters degree over time and there is the option to combine study in Malaysia and study in Australia if you wish to specialise in an area of law not covered below.

* Indicated units are part of the Monash Law Student Malaysia program (CRICOS code  001439E)

Bursaries and Fees

The tuition fee for international students for the Monash Law Masters in 2018 is AUD41,400.

As part of the collaboration – exclusively for Members of the Malaysian Bar – the Faculty of Law at Monash will contribute 20% of your total fees, so that the total tuition cost will be AUD33,120. This provides Members of the Malaysian Bar exclusively with a saving of AUD8,280. 

Students are required to complete 8 subjects (each worth 6 credit points) to be awarded the Masters degree​.  Therefore, students will receive a fee remission of AUD1,035 per 6 credit point unit (or AUD2,070 for a 12 credit point unit).

The tuition fee for Members of the Malaysian Bar is AUD4,140 per subject (unit). Based on a part-time enrolment of two subjects (units) per semester over two years, each of the four semesters incurs a tuition fee of AUD4,140 x 2 = AUD8,280. 

This fee schedule is created exclusively for Members of the Malaysian Bar in order to make completing the Monash University Master of Laws program more accessible.
