The UQ Master of Laws (LLM) provides students with access to an exceptional teaching and learning environment, informed by high quality legal research.

UQ Law School has recently enhanced the Master of Laws program to ensure that it meets the needs of the practising profession, through the development of new practitioner-focused courses which:

  • cover key areas of difficulty and importance in legal practice,
  • are devised and taught by leading judges, practitioners and legal academics,
  • are delivered using a seminar-style approach to maximise the interaction with teaching staff, and
  • are structured with practitioners in mind, with flexible delivery options (on-campus and online) and convenient assessment schedules.

These courses can be taken as part of the Master of Laws degree program or on a CPD basis.

Brendan Pitman

The UQ Master of Laws offered me the flexibility to choose subjects that I was interested in, rather than being stuck doing core subjects that had no practical benefit to my career. The quality of teachers and the custom pathways really mean it is unparalleled.
