  • Course description
    Master of Laws by Coursework

    Students must satisfactorily complete eight coursework subjects from the subjects available in the Melbourne Law Masters. Your subject choice may reflect your own interests or take advantage of the standard opportunities for specialisation. The Law School must approve your combination of subjects.

    Master of Laws by Coursework and Minor Thesis

    Students must satisfactorily complete four coursework subjects and achieve a minimum of 70% in each subject. Students may then prepare either a minor thesis of 20,000 to 35,000 words or two major articles of 10,000 words each, suitable for publication in a learned legal journal.

    The Law School must approve your combination of subjects and thesis topic. Your thesis topic will usually build on the subjects you have completed, and the minor thesis should be suitable for publication in a learned legal journal or otherwise of a standard approved by the Law School.

    Guidelines for preparing a Minor Thesis proposal


    Once you have submitted your thesis topic to the Law School for approval, an appropriate supervisor will be sought who may help you to refine your chosen topic. Once final approval is obtained, a supervisor is appointed and supervision is carried out in accordance with the Law School’s Code of Supervisory Practice.
