Australian National University
The ANU Juris Doctor (JD) is a distinctive program for graduates of non-law disciplines (or non-Australian law degrees). Like the undergraduate B Laws (LLB), it satisfies the academic requirement for admission to legal practice in Australia.
Students have access to dedicated JD courses and other courses offered as part of the LLM program
The ANU JD is a fee-paying program, although a small number of Commonwealth-supported places (CSP) may be available. CSP are assessed on the basis of academic merit.
Unless otherwise indicated, ANU will accept all Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications or international equivalents that meet or exceed the published admission requirements of our programs, provided all other admission requirements are also met. Where an applicant has more than one completed tertiary qualification, ANU will base assessment on the qualification that best meets the admission requirements for the program.
ANU uses a 7-point grade point average (GPA) scale. All qualifications submitted for admission at ANU will be converted to this common scale, which will determine if an applicant meets our published admission requirements. Find out how a 7-point GPA is calculated for Australian universities.
Unless otherwise indicated, where an applicant has more than one completed tertiary qualification, ANU will calculate the GPA for each qualification separately. ANU will base assessment on the best GPA of all completed tertiary qualifications that are eligible to be considered.
