The ANU College of Law has combined its strengths in commercial law and public law to create the Government and Commercial Law specialisation. This specialisation reflects important developments in the modern legal environment, as the public and private spheres of legal practice increasingly intersect.
Commercial law now touches most aspects of private business and public government, and public law is a field in which the ANU College of Law is nationally pre-eminent. The College's close links with government, the Parliament and its proximity to the High Court makes it an ideal place to study the intersection of commercial law and government.
The Government and Commercial Law programs are designed for lawyers to expand their expertise in areas of importance to their day-to-day practice as well as for non-lawyers in both the public and private sectors who have had relevant business experience and who need to acquire familiarity with legal issues.
