The flexible course curriculum of the Master of Laws (LLM) gives you the freedom to personalise your education. You can choose a specialised area of the law or broaden your knowledge across a diverse range of subjects including commercial law, government regulation, resources law and a range of public and private international law areas. 

This Master of Laws at The University of Western Australia provides a diverse range of subjects and law graduates can choose to either specialise or select a variety of subjects to broaden their legal expertise. A cross-section of units includes international commercial arbitration, government accountability, family law, property law and employment law.


This course provides law graduates with advanced reasoning, knowledge and research skills which are highly valued by employers in our increasingly complex and dynamic workplace. While many graduates go on to successful careers as policy advisors, lawyers, academics or in-house counsel, many also choose not to practise law. Instead, their qualifications enhance their employment opportunities in areas across business, government and non-government organisations.
