Melbourne Competition Law Masters 2016

This is a great program as I know firsthand from teaching in it in 2015.  The students and instruction make this a spectacular program.  For people based in Asia and Latin America in particular, this is the best program within a 12 hour flight.

Melbourne Law School, ranked in the top 10 law schools in the world, offers an extensive masters program in the complex and challenging field of competition and consumer law. 


Details of the 2016 program, including courses and subjects, are now available and can be viewed here. There are more than 10 subjects in the Competition and Consumer Law specialty of the Melbourne Law Masters next year, spanning the areas of:

  • competition economics
  • global cartel enforcement
  • consumer policy and law
  • competition and new technologies
  • infrastructure and utility regulation

and many more.

Competition and Consumer Law subjects can be credited to a range of courses, including the specialist Master of Competition and Consumer Law (8 subjects), Graduate Diploma in Competition and Consumer Law (4 subjects) as well as the general Master of Laws (LLM).

All subjects can also be taken as a single subject, with or without assessment, by suitably qualified applicants, including applicants without an undergraduate law or common law degree, and who do not wish to take a full course such as a Masters or Graduate Diploma (information about selection criteria is here).

All of the subjects in the Competition and Consumer Law specialty are scheduled intensively over 5 days in Melbourne.

Subjects are taught by academic and professional experts in this field from Australia and around the world (including leading figures such as Bill Kovacic, Mark Furse, Philip Williams, Damien Geradin, Andreas Stephan and others).

Classes are small and interactive, giving students the opportunity to network with teachers and other students who come from practice, government and competition authorities from across the globe.

Students have additional opportunities such as professional mentoring, internships and research centre affiliation (see the Competition Law and Economic Network) and may be interested to apply for scholarships from the Australian government to assist in funding their study (see here).

The Competition and Consumer Law specialty is part of the world class Melbourne Law Masters program, offering an extraordinary breadth and depth of study and subject choices. In 2016 the program offers 165 subjects, taught by an eminent faculty that includes 60 international visiting lecturers. A hard copy of the 2016 Prospectus is readily available on request: Alternatively you can download a digital copy from the website here.
