Law program takes aim at Asia-Pacific region

Charles Darwin University’s School of Law has launched a new online Master of Laws by coursework, which initially will be available to students in Australia and the Philippines.

Head of the School of Law Professor Ned Aughterson said the program emphasised issues of special interest in the Asia-Pacific region, including the network of trade and other agreements created under the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

“The impact of regional harmonisation is beginning to be felt across all sectors of society in the Asia-Pacific region,” Professor Aughterson said.

“This new program aligns strongly with this reality, and is a way for students to position themselves as leaders of knowledge in critical areas.”

Units offered in the program include ASEAN Overview and Context, Comparative Legal Systems, Transnational Law, International Criminal Law, Public International Law, Indigenous Peoples and the Law, Transnational Issues in Family Law, and Finance and Securities Law.
