Melbourne Law School's graduate program in construction law has been tailored to give construction lawyers and professionals in building, construction, engineering and associated industries the specialised legal knowledge to take the next step in their careers.

|Course Structure & Available Subjects:||
Students who do not have a law degree from a common law jurisdiction must complete Fundamentals of the Common Law as well as seven subjects from the prescribed lists. Students with a law degree from a common law jurisdiction must complete at least seven subjects from the prescribed lists and may choose an eighth subject from those available in the Melbourne Law Masters (excluding Fundamentals of the Common Law).
From 2010, there are no compulsory subjects in the Master of Construction Law (applies also to students who enrolled prior to 2010).
Principles of Construction Law is strongly recommended for students who do not have a law degree from a common law jurisdiction and recommended for law graduates without substantial construction law experience. These students should take the subject before any other construction law subjects but (if applicable) after Fundamentals of the Common Law.
It is also recommended that students without a technical background undertake Construction: Principles into Practice early in their course.
Note: Rights and Liabilities in Construction is no longer offered in the Melbourne Law Masters program.
