Why Study Law at Griffith College?


I relocated to Australia after completing my LL.M. It soon became apparent that my LL.M was highly regarded and relevant to a number of industries here. I have spent the last 2 years as a senior advisor for contracts and governance in a statutory authority engaged in civil aviation.
