Are you passionate about improving people’s lives and the societies we inhabit? This double degree boosts your grasp of processes and ideas that can make all the difference.
Graduates of this course can anticipate a wide range of careers specific to the law or social science, or as a combination of both. Spanning the public and private sectors, options include legal practice as a barrister or solicitor, social welfare, community development, social policy, social justice, research and analysis.
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 be eligible to practise as a lawyer.
Applicants who do not have the required entry mark are encouraged to apply for the Bachelor of Social Science. If those students achieve the required grade point average during that course, they may then apply for transfer into the double degree.
