Melbourne Law Masters 2013 Competition and Consumer Law specialisation

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Melbourne Law
Masters 2013
Competition
and Consumer Law specialisation
The Melbourne Law School, recently ranked in the top ten law schools in the world*, is the only law school in the Asia Pacific region to offer a comprehensive masters program in the important challenging field of competition and consumer law.
Details of the 2013 program are now available and can be viewed here. There will be nine subjects in the Competition and Consumer Law specialty spanning the areas of competition economics, cartels, mergers and consumer law, amongst others.  For the first time the program will feature a subject dedicated to East Asian Competition Policy and Law, taught by Professor Mark Williams from Hong Kong.
Competition and Consumer Law subjects can be credited to a range of courses, including the Graduate Diploma in Competition
Law
or another specialty degree such as the Masters of Commercial Law. All subjects can also be taken as a single subject, with or without assessment, by suitably qualified applicants who do not wish to take a full degree (information about selection criteria is here). All of the subjects in this specialty are scheduled intensively over 5 days in Melbourne.
Taught by experts in this field from around the world, all classes are small and interactive, giving students the opportunity to network with teachers and other students who come from practice, government and competition authorities. International students have additional opportunities such as professional mentoring, internships and research centre affiliation (see the Competition Law & Economics
Network).
The Competition and Consumer Law specialty is part of the world class Melbourne Law Masters program. In 2013 the program offers 22 specialties (including new specialties in Energy Law and Environmental Law) and 167 subjects, taught by an eminent faculty that includes 57 international visiting lecturers. A copy of the 2013 Prospectus is readily available on request: law-masters@unimelb.edu.au.
