Throughout Australia, more than 30 universities offer professional law degrees, which are open to international students. These include undergraduate and graduate-entry Bachelor of Laws (LLB) programs as well as postgraduate Juris Doctor degrees.

As a Canadian seeking to become qualified to practice law, you have a range of study options abroad. As Commonwealth nations, the Australian and Canadian systems are based on English common law, and Australian law schools provide a solid foundation for students planning to practice law in Canada (with the exception of Quebec). OzTREKK's aim is to assist you in choosing the best Australian law school for you.

Both the Juris Doctor and the Graduate-entry Bachelor of Laws are graduate law degrees. They are designed to equip students for a career in the legal profession. Students must have completed an undergraduate degree to be eligible for entry into either one of these programs. The J.D. is a fairly recent program offering in Australia. The J.D. originated in the United States and is now offered at many Canadian institutions as well as at a number of Australian universities.

The following Australian universities offer graduate-entry law programs:
Bond University
Griffith University
James Cook University
Macquarie University
Monash University
The University of Melbourne
The University of Newcastle
The University of Queensland
The University of Sydney

Graduate qualifications in law from Australian universities are recognized internationally. Canadian students who wish to practice as lawyers upon their return to Canada should contact OzTREKK for the latest updates and information regarding the licencing and accreditation process.

The OzTREKK Admissions Officer for Australian Law Schools is Shannon Tilston.
