Melbourne Law School, at the University of Melbourne, was Australia’s first law school, founded in 1857. It has since educated judges, prime ministers, and academics, as well as practicing lawyers. Its faculty is at the vanguard of legal education, firmly committed to offering Australia’s most globalized program of instruction. Melbourne recently transitioned to Australia’s first fully-graduate Law School, with its students pursuing Juris Doctor degrees following a broad undergraduate experience.

The city of Melbourne has been ranked as one of the world’s most livable cities, sporting 567.8 hectares of parkland. The city claims a position as Australia’s pre-eminent center for arts and culture, education, dining and shopping.

Georgetown’s exchange agreement with Melbourne Law School allows a total of up to two students to study for a semester at the law school. In 2019 Melbourne did not host any Georgetown students.
