Taught by leading experts from across the globe, this program is one of only a handful of comprehensive graduate offerings in competition and consumer law available in the world.
I’m excited to be working alongside leading experts to offer a highly innovative in-depth program that will advance the careers of its students in the global field of competition and consumer law and economics.
Directed by Professor Caron Beaton-Wells of the Melbourne Law School and delivered by world-leading experts in the field from academia, private practice and government, this program is one of only a handful of comprehensive graduate offerings in competition and consumer law available in the world.
Designed for law and non-law graduates who are looking to establish or advance their career in global competition and consumer law, this program covers every major aspect of the policy, law, economics and institutions in this field from multiple perspectives including government, practitioner, business and enforcement.
Our online graduate courses are of the same high standard and are equivalent in rigour and learning outcomes as our on-campus courses. This means you will graduate with exactly the same highly regarded qualification as you would from an on-campus course. If you are graduating with a LLM or other masters degree you can choose to attend a graduation ceremony or graduate in absentia and your official graduation certificate will be just the same as the certificates that apply to on campus degrees (with no reference to the course having been undertaken online).
