An international approach to commercial law

An international approach to commercial law

By Young Lawyers Journal

Melbourne Law Masters student Nicola Jackson is successfully combining a full-time legal job with further study for her Master of Commercial Law. An in-house lawyer for Telstra, Ms Jackson returned to part-time study at Melbourne Law School (MLS) to pursue her interest in competition and antitrust law and is now completing her final subject. “The highlights have really been the opportunity to expand my understanding of competition law and to gain a broad understanding of the approach taken to competition and antitrust law in a number of international jurisdictions,” Ms Jackson said. “I was really humbled by the way that a number of international experts with very demanding careers overseas invested their time heavily in preparing such engaging and relevant courses for us.” Ms Jackson’s interest in the law stemmed from a passion for politics and government. Having now worked in the law for more than eight years, Ms Jackson’s focus has largely been on areas of commercial law in regulated industries. “I enjoy the problem solving dimension to resolving issues in my current job, which involves achieving the right balance between compliance with relevant legal and regulatory obligations, promoting an optimal customer experience and a sensible commercial outcome,” Ms Jackson said. For Ms Jackson, the highlights of her study at MLS have been the quality of teaching and ability to apply new knowledge to her everyday work. “Learning from international experts, such as Professor Damien Geradin, on the approach taken in the EU to competition issues relating to emerging technologies and Mr John Randall QC on contract termination, has been invaluable.” Ms Jackson would recommend studying the Master of Commercial Law to anyone with a commercial contracting background or looking to broaden their skill set. “It has been an excellent way for me to devote time that I otherwise wouldn’t to deepening my understanding of particular areas of the law. It also has broad applications for anyone working in commercial law.” For more information on the Melbourne Law Masters, visit:
