Details

Tailor your studies to your specific goals by combining our accredited Bachelor of Laws degree with another degree. When you graduate after five years, you have two degrees, and excellent legal skills relevant to professional employment.

The law component provides you with professional legal skills including the ability to analyse legal material, understand fundamental legal principles, understand the relationship between law and society, and gain general analytical skills for critical thinking and problem solving. Special emphasis is placed on the development of skills in advocacy, negotiation, legal drafting and legal research.

Your practical legal skills will be further developed using our extensive law library, computer-based law research lab and state-of-the-art moot courts located on our Campbelltown and Parramatta campuses.

Students often engage in work experience during their course. Examples include working at the NSW Attorney General's in legal aid, working in cooperative Summer Research Programs with industry, and in the Australian Taxation Office advisory support scheme. The School is also undertaking a pilot with the National Pro Bono Board for a student pro bono (volunteer) scheme.
