The specialisation in competition and consumer law offers advanced expertise and skills in an area of law that is growing, complex, interdisciplinary and relevant both in Australia and internationally. The courses in this specialisation are designed to recognise the economic character of the law, and also to offer an applied focus on issues arising in practice. In addition to providing students with a detailed understanding of the policy and law currently regulating competition and consumer protection, law reform initiatives and international and comparative perspectives are at the heart of the program.
