    Monash law graduates excel around the world. Associate Professor Gideon Boas was the senior legal advisor to the Trial Chamber on the Miloevic case at the International Criminal Tribunal. Former Young Australian of the Year, Hugh Evans, is the CEO of The Global Poverty Project and one of the key leaders behind the Australian Make Poverty History campaign.

    Graduates practise law as barristers or solicitors, and many use their skills and knowledge in a variety of law-related occupations within the judiciary, government, media, business industry and politics.

    Be aware that no law degree allows you to practise straight away. To practise as a lawyer after you graduate, you must get work experience, complete practical legal training, and then get admitted to practice.

    We help students connect with employers, find jobs and explore career options.
