What our students say

''I completed an LLM in International Commercial Law at Griffith College. Despite the Master’s being conducted online due to Covid restrictions, the interactive nature of the classes was very enjoyable. I engaged in class discussions which helped me to build upon the topics being taught. Additionally, the lecturers were always available to assist me, both academically and professionally. I enjoyed my time at Griffith College, and I would recommend this course to others looking for a Masters in Law.''
