Course Description

Whether you are defending a client in court, challenging a ruling in a sport tribunal, building a case to protect the environment, or wanting to kick-start a corporate career, a law degree is an incredibly useful qualification to have.

Because laws have impacts on so many aspects of our lives, a legal degree is designed to equip you with the fundamentals of good legal practice. In addition, at Southern Cross, our commitment to ethics, social justice and experience-based learning means that our law students are exposed to a broad range of learning opportunities that aren’t found at many other universities.

This four-year course will equip you with the skills to start a legal career and practice as a lawyer, and will also prepare you for a wide range of careers in corporate management, philanthropic organisations or the private sector.
