Postgraduate Study and Research

The Faculty of Law offers Masters of Law (LLM) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) as research higher degrees. Masters study usually takes between one and two years to complete; PhD study usually takes between two and four years to complete.

Through the Centre for Legal Studies the Faculty offers the Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice (GDLP) also known as the Tasmanian Legal Practice Course. The Course is a six month professional and practical legal training course which leads to admission to the legal profession.

There is now a postgraduate course offered which is partially coursework based: Master of Environmental Governance (Oceans, Polar and Climate) as well an entirely coursework based course: Graduate Certificate of Workplace Conflict Management.

The Faculty of Law encourages postgraduate students to consider themselves full members of the Faculty, while receiving excellent guidance from the Faculty’s academic staff, a pleasant and flexible working space, and outstanding IT support.
