What our students say

"I recently completed the LL.M. in International Law at Griffith College. I loved the content of the course, it was really engaging and shaped to fit current affairs. Doing the course over two years made it easy to work and study. I loved meeting people from all walks of life as I got to see different perspectives on the course topics. Because of my LL.M. in International Law, I am now working happily in Data Protection. It gave me a path when I wasn’t sure where to go with my career and I got to meet some amazing people along the way." 

Ciana Brady
LL.M. International Law

''I selected Griffith College for my studies because I wanted to attend a small institution that allowed for greater engagement with lecturers and fellow students while providing an intellectually stimulating environment. The structure of the LLM programme allowed me to interrogate the legal and political challenges facing nation-states today. It also allowed me to explore a lifelong interest of mine, animal welfare, within the context of international legal mechanisms.  Prior to pursuing my Master's degree, I was uncertain as to whether or not I wished to continue being a practitioner of the law however I discovered a genuine appreciation for international legal systems.''
