Bachelor of Arts/Law

We took classes within the very buildings where international diplomacy takes place, like the United Nations, World Trade Organisation and the International Committee of the Red Cross.

The Geneva program was by far the most enjoyable course that I have undertaken at the ANU. Not only were we able to hear from so many experts working in the International Law field, we were undertaking classes within the very buildings that international diplomacy takes place. 

During our time in Geneva we were given the opportunity to learn about the operations of various UN bodies and NGOs. All guest lecturers were engaging and fostered a valuable discussion whilst providing helpful insight into possible future employment within the organisations. 

I couldn’t endorse this program more highly and would encourage anyone with an interest in international law to apply. 

Exchange

ANU has exchange agreements with a range of partner universities in a multitude of countries, offering the chance to study in English as well as other languages. Opportunities are available to domestic and international students through our Global Programs office.

Overseas courses

ANU Law offers three specific courses based overseas - in Geneva, Alabama and Kyoto. Students eligible for these courses gain significant benefits from experiencing international law first-hand. Entry to these courses is highly competitive, due to strictly limited numbers in each teaching session.

International exchange

Once you are an ANU Law student, our network of international exchange partner universities creates opportunities for you to complete part of your degree overseas. ANU partners with universities all over the world, offering opportunities to study in English as well as in another language.

Most exchanges are limited to a single semester. Once you are enrolled with us, you can learn more about eligibility requirements, how to apply, and how to support yourself while you are on an outbound international exchange. All international exchanges are arranged through ANU Global Programs.

International mooting competitions

ANU Law has a proud tradition of competing in international mooting competitions. The ANU team has won the International finals of the Phillip C. Jessup International Law Mooting Competition in Washington DC on several occasions.

In 2014 the ANU Law mooting team won the inaugural NLU and Herbert Smith Freehills (HSF) International Negotiation Competition in Delhi, and the prestigious Copenhagen Competition international law moot.

To prepare our students for participation in these competitions, the College runs a dedicated elective called International Mooting, Advocacy & Process. We also provide you with information, preparation and support for participating in a range of moots which can count as credit towards completing this course.

International internships

ANU runs the Washington Internship Program which gives students a unique opportunity to network with some of the most powerful people in American politics. The six-week internships in the United States Congress take place in January and February and are available to Australian National University (ANU) undergraduate students.*

ANU also runs the Taiwan Public Policy Internship Program. Offered for the first time in semester one 2016, the program is a six-week research internship with a department or agency in the Taiwanese Government (Republic of China) and is open to undergraduate students (aged between 18 and 28) in their third year of study or honours.*

*NB These internships are not available to single undergraduate degree Law students, but you may be eligible to take one of these internships as a non-law elective course; or for Flexible Double Degree students, as part of your other degree from another ANU College
