The specialisation in construction law has been tailored to give construction lawyers and professionals in building, construction, engineering and associated industries the specialised legal knowledge to take the next step in their careers. Working with teachers who are leaders in their fields, and fellow students from throughout Australia and around the world, students have a unique opportunity to gain a thorough understanding of this specialised area of law and its interaction with the commerce and practice of the industry.
The Law School commenced graduate courses in construction law in 2000. The program offers a specialist Master of Construction Law and Graduate Diploma in Construction Law, and construction law subjects may also be taken as part of the Law School's LLM or Master of Commercial Law degrees. Subjects are also available singly, with or without assessment, for continuing professional development purposes (See details on how Melbourne Law Masters courses and subjects can meet legal practitioners' CPD requirements).
All subjects can be taken as part of a degree or on a single subject basis.
