Griffith Law School is ranked in the world's top 100 law schools (QS World University Rankings) and offers a dedicated graduate program for Canadian students pursuing a career in Australia or Canada.

Griffith University's graduate Bachelor of Laws program includes Canadian Law courses to prepare for the National Committee on Accreditation exams to certify your Griffith law degree for practice in Canada. You will learn from experienced lecturers who can guide you through what's involved and give you personalised advice on how to prepare. You can even attempt the exams on the Gold Coast before returning to Canada.

The Griffith Canadian Law Students Association (GCLSA) is also there to support you and give advice on making the most of studying on the Gold Coast. Whether you want to find a study group, network with graduates or just enjoy Canadian Thanksgiving (or hockey) with new friends, the GCLSA is run by Canadian students for your benefit and well-being.

 

Unique Features of the Program

*Canadian Accreditation Accelerated Pathway
Graduate in 2 years (6 trimesters): students who choose to enrol in the Canadian Law elective areas will complete these courses over Griffith's Summer Semester (Trimester 3), allowing them to graduate in 2 years rather than 3.

Grifth Law School offers a dedicated graduate program for Canadian students pursuing a legal career in Australia or Canada. Griffith offers elective Canadian Law courses that count towards your degree and prepare you for the NCA exams. You will learn from experienced lecturers who can guide you through what’s involved and give you personalised advice on how to prepare.

Students receive support and advice from the Canadian Law Student Association including regular mentoring meetings with the Deputy Head of School for Learning and Teaching.

Griffith Law School has first-year coordinators dedicated to making the adjustment to studying law seamless with online resources, how-to videos and follow-up contact throughout the semester to keep you on track.

Griffith Law School students should also thrive in the profession, which is why Griffith's graduate LLB program includes a capstone course for the final year of study. The course assists students to unpack the ethically complex situations they may face as practising lawyers and to understand their professional and ethical responsibilities.

Amazing campus location: Griffith University's vibrant Gold Coast campus is just minutes from world-renowned beaches and a lush hinterland. There's an unexpected adventure waiting beyond your law books. Griffith Law School is your first-class destination for legal education on the Gold Coast.
