Course Description

A Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) – Bachelor of Laws from UOW will equip you with a comprehensive legal education: a world-class degree that provides a thorough grounding in the law, as well as a real-world focus on the essential practical skills and the social and ethical context in which the law operates.

Combining Law with a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology), you will attain knowledge of biological and social bases of behaviour, cognition and perception, social and developmental psychology, personality, and applied psychology. This combination gives you an in-depth understanding and reasoning of the human experience that can enhance your skills as a legal practitioner.

We believe that practical experience is a vital part of your legal training. We are the only law school in New South Wales that requires you to complete a legal internship, providing highly valued industry experience.

We are committed to social justice and providing a legal education that engages with the complexities of law's intersection with society.

This double degree delivers a practical and contextual legal education that prepares graduates not only for traditional careers in the legal profession but also for a wide range of careers in government, business and community organisations – as leaders, innovators and problem solvers.
