Course Description

The Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Arts has been structured in a manner that allows it to be completed over five years with a strong emphasis on ethics, practical legal learning and the concepts of duty, social function and service to others, as dictated by the Objects of the University.

The completion of a double degree enhances employment prospects and allows graduates to choose a career from a wider field of opportunities. Depending on the Arts major, employment opportunities are plentiful. Graduates may apply for Government positions at both State and Federal level, such as Parliamentary advisors/legislators or positions in Foreign Affairs and the Diplomatic Service.

Many law firms and government departments prefer double degrees over single Law degrees. The second degree gives an added depth of knowledge to the Law degree and makes a graduate more marketable. School leavers particularly, are encouraged to undertake the double Law degree. One extra year of study provides a second qualification.
