Teaching and research at the CDU School of Law is focused on the transnational and comparative aspects of law. This perspective is reflected in every program level and, to the extent possible, in every course unit. The unit offerings in the Master of Laws (LLM) program share that focus.
Transnational and comparative law issues are at the forefront of legal research around the world, but in the Asia-Pacific region especially, governments, business, and academics are turning their attention with increasing urgency and intensity to the anticipated impacts of the many economic and political cooperation and harmonization initiatives (WTO, ASEAN, TPP, etc.) that are beginning to significantly change political, economic, and social structures across the region. The effects will be felt across almost all legal disciplines and sectors, from trade and competition law to criminal and family law.
The CDU LLM program offers candidates an opportunity to move to the leading edge of knowledge and scholarship in these emerging and vital fields.
The LLM will be offered online only, within Australia and the Philippines. It is the student's responsibility to ensure access to an internet service with appropriate bandwidth to view or download LLM Program content and to engage synchronously online with staff and other students.
