Whether you aspire to work in a top-tier law firm, improve access to justice or work in international business or development, a Monash law degree lets you take the first step. You’ll be building a solid foundation for a legal career, with your training beginning on day one with our guaranteed clinical legal education.

In this practical Laws (Honours) program at Monash University  , you’ll also have the option of studying overseas, taking one of many different double degree options and gaining applied legal experience.

In your first year, you’ll begin mastering the concepts, procedures and reasoning underpinning the Australian legal system. Alongside this rigorous training in the basics, you’ll also be able to pursue the areas of the law that interest you.

You’ll benefit from a range of specialist law electives as diverse as negotiation and conflict resolution, media law or animal law.
