Master of International Commercial Law

The Master of International Commercial Law (MICLaw) was developed in response to the growth in international commerce and global trade.

This program is designed for law and non-law graduates seeking opportunities in these key international areas and looking to consolidate their understanding of the legal and regulatory frameworks, either nationally or internationally, which impact upon their current work. 


One year full-time. Domestic students may undertake this program on an equivalent part-time basis


Semester 1 (February/March) or semester 2 (July)

Entry requirements

Please review MICLaw entry requirements and English proficiency requirements.

What you will study

Courses are taught by an impressive team of academic staff and visiting academics, including legal practitioners. Classes are delivered in small and intimate settings, facilitating knowledge-sharing and interaction, and stimulating discussion and collaboration. This environment will encourage you to achieve at the highest level. The smaller cohort means you will feel a genuine sense of belonging, and have the ability to build your professional network from day one.

Ensure you familiarise yourself with your specific completion requirements.

Career opportunities

As a MICLaw graduate, you will have obtained a qualification that will enhance your employment prospects in the area of international commerce and trade.

Professional memberships

In Queensland, legal practitioners are required to complete a minimum of 10 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points each year to maintain their practising certificates and stay abreast of legislative changes and the evolution of the “business of law” in their practices.

Postgraduate study programs such as the MICLaw are recognised towards Queensland Law Society CPD scheme units if you can demonstrate relevance to your legal practice.
