About this course

This program is designed for both lawyers and non-lawyers wishing to focus their studies on international law. In an increasingly internationalised world, international law shapes almost all forms of international interaction, from business, to trade, to diplomacy, and in war. People already working or hoping to work in a variety of internationally focused fields, such as business, policy, government, and the NGO sector would benefit from a clear understanding of the structure of the international laws that shape the international system, and how to work within those laws.

The Master of International Law has four compulsory courses: one introducing public international law, and a series of three courses that focus on international law in action, and the nexus between international law and domestic law. Students then choose from a range of elective courses to suit personal growth and interest.

The program is open to students with an undergraduate degree in law, arts, business, commerce or economics who have completed a minimum of four internationally-focussed courses.

Dual degree programs for the Master of International Law:

  • Masters of International Relations/International Law
