 Subject details


Drawing on cutting-edge leadership theory and organisational psychology principles, this course will give you the self-awareness and critical thinking you need to become a transformational leader in legal business.



The legal profession has changed. How does your business strategy stack up? It's time to ask some hard questions.

Should strategy always be centred on growth? Are there other barometers for success? Could collaboration – rather than competition – be a more effective strategy for your firm?

Now's the time to look through a critical lens at the age-old approach to legal business strategy.



As a leader, you achieve your firm (or departments) objectives through the people you lead. From this subject you will examine how successful organisations achieve high performance, learn how to motivate your people and develop your coaching skills.



Significant changes in legal delivery are occurring around the globe. Traditional ways of doing business have given way to innovation at lightning speed.

Here you’ll learn how to identify and implement innovative solutions, to address legal services delivery challenges.



Understand the client buying process, from the client's perspective.

In this subject you’ll uncover insights into the client buying experience, explore how to optimise your market reach, and learn how to grow your client base.



This is the ‘how to’ of building client relationships. A hands-on approach to assessing your client base, developing a pipeline of prospects, pricing to existing and prospective clients and ongoing relationship building.



Understand how to take advantage of new paradigm in which legal services are run like a business using data, metrics and technology. You will learn the key aspects of legal operations management to improve legal service delivery in your legal firm or department.



The Capstone Project is taken as your final subject, as a culmination of the knowledge and skills attained throughout your Master of Legal Business. It will allow you to demonstrate your skills in legal business using real-life scenarios and case studies.
