What will I learn?

Our Juris Doctor is an intensive, graduate entry law degree designed for non-law graduates. The Monash JD recognises the specific needs of graduate entrants and teaches the knowledge and skills available only from one of Australia's leading law schools. We offer small class sizes and innovative teaching to promote interactivity and in depth learning. All classes are taught at the city-based Monash Law Chambers, located in the heart of Melbourne's legal precinct.

This three year full-time (six year part-time) graduate entry law degree provides high quality graduate-level education in the theory and practice of the law. The course focuses on the knowledge, legal skills and professional ethics expected of legal practitioners. The flexible nature of the Monash JD allows you to tailor your workload to suit your professional and personal commitments.

Small seminar-style classes bring together passionate and dedicated individuals with diverse professional experiences in a stimulating and challenging environment.

There are three intakes per year: January, May and August.
