Master of 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 (MILaw) is available to both law and non-law graduates wishing to focus their studies on international law. The Master of International Law may also be studied concurrently with the Master of International Relations through the combined Master of International Relations / Master of International Law


One-and-a-half years 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 MILaw entry requirements and English proficiency requirements.

What you will study

Students are required to complete four compulsory courses, and will then choose from a range of elective courses carefully selected to be intelligible to non-lawyers while still of interest and benefit to lawyers. Ensure you familiarise yourself with your program-specific requirements.
