Deakin’s Master of Legal Studies degree is designed to enhance professional capabilities, employability and career progression in a range of relevant professional disciplines including international relations, human resources, public health, and humanitarian assistance. In each of these fields it is recognised that the advanced study of law can provide a stronger underpinning to capabilities directly acquired in the co-discipline.
A master degree from the study of relevant law gives students a competitive and reputational advantage in their chosen professional career field. The Master of Legal Studies, in addition to its focused streams/disciplines also provides a Research specialisation, to accommodate a PhD pathway.
This course is suitable for both those who are legally qualified and wish to practice in a chosen professional specialisation, along with those who have undertaken prior studies in one of the non-law specialisations who wish to advance themselves through further legal studies directly applicable to that area.
Graduates will have a competitive advantage in the contemporary professional marketplace targeting the recruitment of multi-skilled professionals.
