Course overview

Multiply your skills, knowledge and career prospects through this double degree that both fosters the arts and lays down the law.

You can immerse yourself in arts majors such as media studies, social sciences and politics, while at the same time gathering the qualifications for a legal career.

You may undertake voluntary legal experience and professional placement with legal firms, or undertake community arts learning opportunities, helping you build practical skills and develop professional networks.

Graduates can pursue career opportunities that combine proficiency in the arts and law; and those specific to each discipline. This may include working in private practice as a solicitor or barrister, in government departments, non-government agencies, legal organisations or careers in the media, public relations and creative industries.

The Bachelor of Laws fulfils the academic requirements to practise law in Australia. Professional admission authorities also require law graduates of all universities to complete practical legal training or similar to practise as a lawyer.

Applicants who do not have the required entry mark for this double degree are encouraged to apply for the Bachelor of Arts. If a student achieves the required grade point average during that course, they may then apply for transfer into the double degree.
