Course Description

This course offers integration between two important and popular areas of study. It will allow you to gain perspective of criminal justice, policy, governance and legal issues, and their impact on society. You'll gain in-depth knowledge of laws and their impact from a justice perspective. You'll gain advanced understanding of the law and legal system, and graduate with broad career options in both the legal and criminal justice systems. Tailor your degree to your interests by choosing a major in either criminology and policing, or policy and governance in your justice degree.

Our Bachelor of Laws (Honours) is a higher-level qualification than a bachelor degree, as it has honours-level content integrated throughout the course. The advanced knowledge and skills in this course will benefit your professional career, or future research and study.

Our contemporary law degree prepares you to think ahead and allows you to take advantage of employment opportunities in growth areas or newly emerging sectors, such as intellectual property and technology.
