LLM (Applied Law) in ASEAN+6 Legal Practice


Program Description


The Master of Laws (Applied Law) in ASEAN+6 Legal Practice is designed to meet the needs of legal professionals engaged in cross-border practice between the ASEAN+6 regional Free Trade Area (ASEAN, plus Australia-New Zealand, China, India, Japan and Korea).

It has been developed by The College of Law in collaboration with the Inter-Pacific Bar Association (IPBA).


Our experience in Australia has shown that employers and students alike are seeking further academic study in the form of real-world legal education, rather than a theoretical focus. Being able to apply what you learned today, tomorrow means your investment is paying off immediately.

When you undertake our Applied Law LLM programme you will be undertaking practice-based tasks and assessments, not writing essays and doing exams.

You will be able to demonstrate to your current or future employer your commitment to self-development and the desire to progress in your career.


To receive a Master of Laws (Applied Law) in ASEAN+6 Legal Practice, complete at least four of your seven subjects from the ASEAN+6 Legal Practice jurisdictional stream, plus a Major Project.

If you obtained your undergraduate legal qualification in a country where English is not the primary spoken language, you will need to supply a certificate that demonstrates your English proficiency in accordance with the IELTS standard at level 8.0 (writing), 7.5 (speaking) and 7.0 (reading).
