The Melbourne Law School welcomes applications from students with disabilities.

The inherent academic requirements for the study in the Melbourne Law School are:
Students must possess behavioural and social attributes that enable them to participate in a complex learning environment. Students are required to take responsibility for their own participation and learning. They also contribute to the learning of other students in collaborative learning environments, demonstrating interpersonal skills and an understanding of the needs of other students. Assessment may include the outcomes of tasks completed in collaboration with other students.

The aim of this subject is to provide practical legal experience in a workplace setting to complement and deepen students’ coursework in the Melbourne JD. Students must complete the equivalent of a 6-week or longer unsalaried internship. Students are encouraged to attend an optional post internship debriefing session that provides a structure for reflection on, and learning from, the internship experience itself.
Internships can be hosted in an organisation in any sector, whether government, private or not-for-profit. The can be locally based, national or international.
During internships, students carry out legally-oriented work that is valuable to the host organisation. Students’ work plan for their internships must be negotiated with the host organisation and approved by the subject coordinator before the internship begins. The proposed work should build on the students’ studies to date in the Melbourne JD, involve some written legal research work and be of an appropriately demanding standard.
