Monash Law Malaysia Program

About the Monash Law Malaysia Program

The Monash Law Malaysia Program is an international summer school offered, organised and conducted by the Faculty of Law of Monash University Australia and held at the Monash University Malaysia campus in Kuala Lumpur. Participating in this short-term mobility program allows Monash University Law students to immerse themselves into life of multicultural Malaysia while studying a range of comparative and international law subjects.

Students will be taught in intensive or semi-intensive mode by distinguished academics from Australia and around the world, drawing from our many partner universities. In small classes and state-of-the-art facilities, you will enjoy a unique study experience with students from international and local partner universities.

At the same time, the Monash Law Malaysia Program offers sufficient flexibility to allow you to experience in your spare time the cultural and natural attractions of Malaysia and the South-East Asian region.
