Communications Law at Melbourne Law School

The specialisation in Communications Law offers an advanced and dynamic understanding of the law affecting the media and communications industries, including its impact on the publication of information, ownership, services and technology. Change is constant in this area of law and the program is regularly renewed to ensure that it captures the latest developments in law, theory, practice and the legal implications of technology.

New subjects added to the specialisation in 2013 offer topical insight into the law affecting ‘newsgathering’ and a foundation in the theory and practice of regulation. Both subjects are taught by international experts Dr Andrew Scott (London School of Economics and Political Science) and Professor Colin Scott (University College Dublin). Melbourne Law School has long-standing expertise in communications law, concentrated in its Centre for Media and Communications Law.

All subjects are run intensively over five consecutive business days for the convenience of working professionals from throughout Australia. Teachers are drawn from throughout Australia and the world from firms, the Bar, judiciary, corporations and government. Quality is maintained by continual review and consultation with practitioner and academic experts in the field.

Communications Law is one of 23 specialist legal areas offered as part of the Melbourne Law Masters. Comprising almost 35 courses, the program offers exceptional quality and a wide subject choice that allows students to tailor courses to meet their personal and professional aspirations.
