Public and International Law

The specialisation in public and international law brings together constitutional, administrative and public international law in recognition of the increasing interdependence of international and domestic law. An extraordinary range of subjects across the entire field of public law offers students access to the latest developments in theory and practice in Australia and elsewhere. The program will appeal both to practitioners and to scholars with backgrounds or interests in government, international institutions, not-for-profit organisations, business/government relations and international development. Students may specialise in international law, Australian public law or comparative public law, or may choose a range of subjects from across different areas to suit their own interests and needs. The Directors of Studies are specialists in international law (Simpson) and Australian and comparative public law (Saunders) and have collaborated closely to develop a program that explores the interface between the two.
