Course Description

The defining nature of our law degree is the unique balance between theory and practice. During your degree, you will complete the academic law units required for admission to legal practice, plus choose elective units that align with your career interests. Crucially, you will develop legal skills such as interviewing, negotiation, drafting and advocacy. You will complete assessment tasks that prepare you for the work you will undertake in the real world. You can also opt for a work placement in law firms, government departments and community organisations. There are opportunities for virtual work placements where you will complete an online project for a real client. And you can sign up for the career mentor scheme to be matched with an industry professional to guide and support you.

QUT’s Bachelor of Laws (Honours) is a higher-level qualification than a bachelor degree, as it has honours-level content integrated throughout the course. The honours units are integrated from years 2 to 4 and will ensure that our graduates remain ahead of the pack in a competitive legal industry. The advanced knowledge and skills in this course will benefit your professional career, or future research and study.
