Law at Macquarie: International Law and Global Governance


[music] What law is about is learning
about the rules that govern our society, so there’s a whole
series of rules that touch on all the different aspects of our lives. So when you’re learning about law,
you need to learn about it in the context of a whole lot
of different subjects. So when you’re studying
here at Macquarie, we place a lot of emphasis
on learning law in context. So what that means is about learning
how law connects with different topics. Amongst all the different
majors that we offer, each of those majors is designed
to let you learn about law relating to those different subjects. International law regulates the
relationship between global players and all kinds of
international stakeholders, and in this globalized and
interdependent world, how these international actors
interact among each other and how they can be governed
in an orderly manner. International law graduates
are attracted to foreign services mostly in departments of
foreign affairs and trade, all kinds of international
organizations such as [?], World Bank, IMF, and
also all sorts of NGOs – voluntary non-governmental
organizations like Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Greenpeace. Various global law
firms are recruiting law graduates with multidimensional, cross-border legal experience so job-wise, employment-wise, there’s
a wide range of options available. It’s important to learn about law
in context in the end because that way it’s going to
have more meaning for you. When you’re having those conversations
with your friends and your family about what’s
going on in the world, you’ll actually have a better
understanding and you’ll be able to help other people understand why
things are happening the way they are. [music]
