Why study the Master of Applied Law?

The Graduate Certificate in Applied Law (GCAppLaw), Graduate Diploma in Applied Law (GDipAppLaw) and Master of Applied Law (MAppLaw) programs are designed for non-law graduates who would find some legal background useful in their current careers. The GDipAppLaw and MAppLaw programs offer a general introduction to basic legal concepts and then enable students to undertake elective courses of special relevance to their professions or occupations. The GCAppLaw offers a general introduction to basic legal concepts and additionally allows students to choose two elective courses within areas of interest from postgraduate law courses.
