Program Rules and Requirements

To complete the Doctor of Laws

Students should be aware of the University of Queensland rules, particularly the General Award Rules, which govern the conduct of UQ programs. Students will find a link to the General Award Rules, and other University rules, on the University Rules page.

A student shall submit evidence of scholarship and original research. The material submitted must constitute an original and distinguished contribution to some branch of legal knowledge. To this end the student shall submit as prime evidence published contributions to legal knowledge. Relevant unpublished contributions to legal knowledge may be offered in support. The eligibility for the degree is assessed on the basis of their published scholarly writings, which in quality and magnitude are expected to surpass the level required for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Refer to LLD rules for further information.
