Course Description

This dual degree program allows students to combine studies in law with a wide range of majors in the arts. The Bachelor of Laws (Honours) (LLB(Hons)) degree is your passport to exceptional success in the employment market: as a barrister or solicitor in private practice, as a prosecutor of crime, as a community lawyer, as a legal officer in the public service, as in-house counsel for a large corporation, or, when combined with another degree in any one of a wide range of positions in areas such as foreign affairs, industrial relations, management, or politics. You will gain a thorough understanding of the concepts, principles, policies and values of the law both in Australia and other jurisdictions. It will also see you develop outstanding skills in critical analysis, thought and argument, skills which will be valuable in whatever career you eventually choose. Your BA studies will provide you with highly developed skills in written communication, problem-solving, critical thinking and interpersonal understanding.
