By studying the Juris Doctor program from The University of Western Australia , you'll benefit from our Law School’s longstanding and deep links with the legal profession. These ties contribute to consistently high rates of employment for our graduates. You'll also have the opportunity to learn from the very best of the legal profession as well as academic staff recognised nationally for excellence in teaching and research. You can participate in practical skill-building programs including mooting (legal advocacy) competitions and internships, and build lifelong friendships with a talented, diverse and vibrant cohort of future leaders.
After completing the Juris Doctor you'll enter the competitive graduate market with an edge, armed with both an undergraduate degree and the JD, which is a prestigious qualification offered by institutions such as Harvard, Yale and Columbia universities. You'll join the ranks of nationally and internationally renowned UWA Law School graduates including Rhodes Scholars, the members of the Judiciary and legal profession, as well as leaders at the highest level of business and government.
Although the practice of law (lawyer, solicitor, barrister, in-house counsel or judge) is the most common career progression for law graduates, the JD also equips you to head into other areas such as politics, international relations, leadership positions and legal publishing.
