Research Centres and Institutes
Melbourne Law School is host to 17 research centres that span the spectrum of legal endeavour and provide many opportunities for students to engage with experts and leaders in all areas of the law. Graduate students and others are encouraged to participate in the research centres' teaching and research programs, and to use the research centres as a resource to pursue their own particular research interests.
In addition to teaching and research programs, the centres and institutes regularly arrange international and national conferences, seminars, interest group discussions, and in-house programs on leading-edge topics.
