Macquarie Law School Juris Doctor (JD) Program

Macquarie University’s JD will continue the Macquarie Law School’s tradition of providing interdisciplinary perspectives on the study of law to ensure graduates not only know what the law is, but why it has evolved the way it has and where it might or should develop in the future. The Macquarie Law School also recognizes the importance of understanding law in a globalized world and ensure all graduates have studied international law. The school has embraced the university’s Participation and Community Engagement program, requiring every student to undertake experiential or work-integrated learning prior to graduation to ensure they are workplace ready.
