Course summary

The Bachelor of Laws (Undergraduate Entry) fulfils the academic requirements for admission as a lawyer in Australia.

In addition to the core units, which comply with professional accreditation requirements, the course includes unique core units such as the philosophy of law and environmental law that reflect the School of Law and Justice’s focus on justice and critique.

Students may choose elective units to suit their interests and professional aspirations including areas as diverse as human rights, race and the law, animal law, climate law and policy, psychiatry, psychology and the law and ecological jurisprudence.

Students may complete electives at an academically rigorous and rewarding Summer Law School in Byron Bay and the Gold Coast and undertake work placements and law mooting as part of their studies. Honours is embedded in the Bachelor of Laws degree and requires the completion of two specific units in addition to a high academic achievement overall. A small number of units include compulsory on-campus workshops

Applicants who do not have the required entry mark for the Bachelor of Laws are encouraged to apply for the Associate Degree in Law (Paralegal Studies) or the Bachelor of Legal and Justice Studies. If students achieve the required grade point average, they can then apply for transfer into the Bachelor of Laws.
