The University of Adelaide recently signed a contract for the Adelaide Law School to provide legal education services to the Commonwealth/ Department of Defence.
Under this contract, Legal Officers from the Australian Defence Force will complete three new postgraduate courses to be offered by Adelaide Law School (in military administrative, discipline and operations law) towards a new Graduate Certificate in Military Law. Some Legal Officers studying under the contract will also undertake electives from our LL.M offerings and complete the Master of Laws program.
