Law affects every aspect of our lives, and can be a professional foundation to a myriad of career opportunities both within the law and beyond.

Wherever your legal future takes you, from corporate law, defending the accused, or striving for social or environmental justice, this course ensures you have the skills and knowledge to make an impact.

In addition to the core units, you can choose from a wide range of electives to shape your studies around your personal and professional interests from areas as diverse as human rights, race and the law, animal law, climate law and policy, psychiatry, psychology and the law and ecological jurisprudence. An elective in mediation meets national requirements, setting you on the way to becoming a nationally accredited mediator.

You may complete units 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 your studies.

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