Summary

The Monash Master of Legal Studies is designed to equip non-lawyers with the legal skills and knowledge you need to make better managerial and commercial decisions and to lead your organisation effectively.

This course provides you with the legal knowledge that will give you a competitive edge in your chosen career.

You can choose to focus on one of nine specialised areas to gain an understanding of the law and how it shapes commercial and public decisions in today’s global environment.

Rigorous knowledge. Specific skills.

Legal knowledge can help any leader deliver better organisational and commercial results, especially in heavily regulated industries. In fact, a study published in the Harvard Review study suggests CEOs with legal training may perform even better than those with an MBA. When you complete a Monash Master of Legal Studies, you’ll undertake the same units as students studying for the Master of Laws degree. In other words, you’ll receive a level of academic rigour that sets you apart from others in your field.
