Monash

General

The Monash Law School is a dynamic and forward-looking law school dedicated to helping students prepare for a changing world. Founded in 1964, it has grown to become the largest law school in Australia and ranks 26th in the world in law according to the QS World University Rankings 2018. Long known for the quality of its clinical program, Monash Law School has increasingly become an international law school. Its curriculum has been developed to ensure an international focus and relevance.

The acceptance of any credit or grade for any courses taken at the Monash Faculty of Law, including externships and other clinical offerings, is subject to determination by the AUWCL Office of the Registrar. AUWCL students will be enrolled in regularly scheduled classes alongside fellow Monash students.
