ABOUT FAMILY LAW
Australia's family law system helps people resolve the legal aspects of family relationship issues – including relationship breakdown, property and parenting arrangements.
The Family Law subjects in the Postgraduate Applied Law Programs deal with the legal aspects of working with families.
The Graduate Diploma of Family Dispute Resolution Practice (FDRP) equips those looking to become Accredited FDRPs with the tools to help resolve disputes caused by separation or divorce.

You can also take any of these subjects as part of the LLM (Applied Law).
FDR4 Case Management in Family Dispute Resolution Capstone - makes up 30 hours of the required practicum component.
