Australian university announces global law programme
The University of Sydney Law School has launched a new Master of Global Law for 2010. Candidates will get the opportunity to gain exposure to units of study in international law, comparative and foreign law, and domestic (Australian) law.
‘Global law encompasses not just international law, but an approach to law that is trans-national in scope, taking in the domestic laws of different countries, and integrating an understanding of domestic regimes within the context of international laws, instruments and institutions,’ says Programme Coordinator and Associate Dean (Postgraduate Coursework), Professor Roger Magnusson.
Sydney Law School’s new Master of Global Law provides a uniquely flexible pathway to a global legal or business career. This is the first programme of its kind to be offered in Australia. Around 125 units of study will be offered in any given year, and a flexible structure will allow candidates to specialise in their preferred topic areas, while becoming familiar with forms of regulation and the substantive laws of different legal systems, and preparing for legal and business careers that extend beyond Australia’s borders.
