The ANU MLP: the specialist edge in legal practice
The ANU Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice (GDLP) is your shortest pathway to practice law. The ANU Master of Legal Practice (MLP) extends your legal practice knowledge and can be completed in as little as an additional six months after your GDLP.
The ANU MLP is an advanced, practice-based qualification, providing specialised knowledge on the application of law in practice. The ANU MLP instils a higher understanding of law and requires intellectual perseverance and application.
As with the ANU GDLP, the GDLP component of the ANU MLP meets the requirements of the Australian Law Admissions Consultative Committee, enabling you to be admitted to practice as a lawyer in Australia.
With the option of studying completely online, the ANU MLP offers you the opportunity to gain a deeper-level understanding of legal practice and knowledge in specific areas and graduate with a Masters-level qualification.
