Assessments such as assignments, group work and exams are completed as part of each course. Condensing on-campus time into brief, intensive blocks reduces the need for regular commuting and represents a great choice for those who might find traditional weekly classes difficult to factor into their lifestyle.

"I completed my LLM in 2015 after two years of study. My focus in the program was upon insolvency as that is the area I predominantly practice in. After more than 10 years of practical experience it was refreshing to re-enter the classroom and broaden my knowledge of key areas, including relatively new areas such as personal property security law which was not an area of study for me when I initially undertook my legal training.

The quality of the lecturers, including guest lecturers from overseas, was first rate and the materials provided have proved an invaluable resource. The structure of the course allowed me to continue to work and raise a family at the same time as studying. I commend this program to any student or practitioner considering it. " Justin Courtney
