About the Graduate School of Business and Law 

The Graduate School of Business & Law (GSBL), within the College of Business and Law, commenced operations in January 2010. In July 2010 the GSBL moved to the new Emily McPherson premises, opening an exciting new phase in RMIT’s development of professional programs for the experienced, post-graduate law and business market. 


The RMIT Juris Doctor Program (JD) was introduced in July 2007 in RMIT and has become a part of the GSBL in 2010. The JD provides non-law graduates the opportunity to obtain a qualification that leads to entry into the legal profession. In 2021, RMIT offered three undergraduate law programs, the Bachelor of Laws; Bachelor Laws/Bachelor of Business (Information Systems); Bachelor of Law/Bachelor of Business (Economics and Finance). In 2022, the Bachelor of Accounting/Bachelor of Laws was added to the undergraduate law program. 

The Law program features clinic and internship opportunities for both JD and undergraduate law programs, and staff engage in innovative and quality research with social impact.
