“The Juris Doctor doesn’t just prepare you to be a great lawyer; it builds and develops skills and knowledge that are easily transferable to other fields.”
David said the program developed his ability to think critically about problems, analyse ideas, construct arguments and develop solutions, both legal and otherwise.
He said the lecturers combined theoretical know-how with practical experience at every stage of the program.
Mock court trials, legal document drafting, mediations and public speaking were just some of the hands on experiences that brought the learning to life.
RMIT was the only university that offered me the flexibility to study law my way.
"I also completed a study tour at RMIT Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City. This was an invaluable experience which gave life to my studies and made them relevant to the world beyond the classroom," he said.
