In the past decade, issues such as globalisation, deregulation, and the pervasiveness of electronic commerce have resulted in fundamental changes to conventional career opportunities in both the business and government sectors. For that reason, it is an advantage for many professionals to have knowledge and understanding of the legal aspects of business and taxation issues.
The Master of Business Law is an eight-unit program designed for students who are seeking a postgraduate applied business law qualification. This course is of direct relevance to those involved in professional practice or other advisory roles in the private or government sectors, where commercial law and knowledge of the legal environment is necessary. The course will enhance relevant skills for students seeking placements in legal, commercial and governmental regulatory and compliance positions, especially in Australia and Asia.
The Master of Business Law may be combined with other masters degrees, enabling students to graduate with two masters degrees:
- Master of Business (Accounting)/Master of Business Law
- Master of Professional Accounting/Master of Business Law
- Master of Work and Employment Relations/Master of Business Law
Depending on units studied, students may elect to complete the Master of Business Law after completion of an initial masters degree with significant credit. This option is only suitable for some courses and consultation with the Course Director is recommended.
