What is an LLM (Applied Law)?

The LLM (Applied Law) focuses on developing technical and practical proficiency through innovative problem-based learning. It is designed on the basis of learning by doing — the application of legal skills to realistic tasks and scenarios that practitioners encounter in practice. The LLM facilitates flexibility and easy access with online delivery, supported by regular communication with lecturers and mentoring by practitioners from the relevant areas of legal practice.

Each subject is valued at 0.145 EFTSL

Award programs

To enter this program you must hold a law degree or equivalent qualification.

Non-award single subject enrolment

You may enrol in single subjects on a non-award basis if you do not wish to study for a degree or if you do not meet the entry requirements. If you study a single subject assessment is optional. If you would later like to count the subject towards an award you will need to complete the assessment at that time.

Fees must be paid in full for all subjects at the time of enrolment each semester. Payment may be made by cheque, EFT or credit card.

Australian citizens and holders of permanent humanitarian visas may elect to defer their tuition fee payment through the Commonwealth Government’s FEE-HELP scheme.

If you elect to pay with FEE-HELP, you must include a completed Request for FEE-HELP Assistance Form with your completed Application and Enrolment Form. The FEE-HELP information booklet and form are available from the Applied Law Programs Courses Administrator on 1300 856 111 or email: alp@collaw.edu.au

FEE-HELP is not available if you are studying a single subject on a non-award basis.

This program is undertaken primarily online, and some subjects have an optional face-to-face workshop.

We recommend that you allow approximately eight to ten hours of study time per week per subject for the online materials and participation in online learning activities.  In addition you may need to devote further time to assessment tasks and exam preparation.

All key dates including assessment dates are provided to you via the Learning Portal at the beginning of each semester.

The College of Law engages as lecturers legal practitioners who combine substantial experience in law practice with the teaching skills needed to support the learning of our students. In addition, we invite judges and prominent practitioners to present during our workshops.
