The International Law program from the University of Southern Queensland is designed for Australian and overseas law graduates. Students will be able to both broaden and deepen their knowledge of the law and enhance their independent critical thinking and research skills. 


The program enables students to achieve a high standard of professional writing and research relevant to contemporary issues in law and practice. The program includes specialisations that allow for students to concentrate deeply on one or two fields of law, and develop expertise, knowledge and skills.

Program objectives 

On successful completion of the International Law program from the University of Southern Queensland, students will be able to:

  • evaluate developments in chosen areas of law, and critically examine the relationship between those developments and contemporary theory or practice

  • demonstrate advanced knowledge of the impact of globalisation or other legal systems on the substance, theory and practice of Australian law

  • undertake, interpret and evaluate legal research using advanced legal research methodologies and techniques

  • articulate advanced knowledge of law in written or oral presentations.
