JD (Online) students

The purpose of this web page is to provide information to students undertaking the Juris Doctor (Online) program. From 2019, there will be no further intakes into the Juris Doctor (Online) program.

The ANU College of Law has reviewed the Juris Doctor (Online) program, resulting in the decision to provide a single, improved JD program from 2019. The program has been redesigned to combine the strengths of the on-campus and online options into a world-class degree that offers you maximum flexibility and accessibility.

From 2019, students can study ANU Juris Doctor courses online and/or on-campus. Choose either option, or change between modes as your needs change throughout the degree. You can elect to study part-time or full-time with elective courses offered between semesters to allow you to fast-track your studies. Students can elect to study both compulsory and selected elective courses online or on-campus. These preferences can be altered each semester, letting you tailor the program and mode to suit your needs.

Current students


Current and continuing coursework students must re-enrol themselves for each session by the appropriate deadline.


Managing your program


As a postgraduate student of ANU you take responsibility for your own studies administratively and academically. This includes correctly enrolling in the courses, updating your personal details in the ANU system through ISIS, applying for program leave, withdrawing from a course without financial and/or academic penalty, verifying Census Date deadlines, applying for FEE-HELP (if you are eligible) and more.

Policies & procedures

Please go to Policies & procedures for information on (but not limited to):

  • Assessment review & appeals
  • Credit (Status)
  • Word limits
  • Special Consideration
  • Course study load & overloading
  • Academic Integrity / Misconduct

Check your program fees

All students will receive an invoice in ISIS in the first weeks of each session you are enrolled in. Your invoice will indicate the cost of your course tuition, and the due date for payment.

Eligible domestic students may apply for FEE-HELP through ISIS to defer their fees to the Australian Taxation Office. Ensure you apply for FEE-HELP before the course Census Date or you will need to pay your fees upfront.


Completing the Juris Doctor (Online) is a significant academic achievement and is rightly celebrated at the University's prestigious Conferring of Awards ceremonies. Conferring of Awards ceremonies are inspiring events that have both formal and symbolic significance.
