Go to Bachelor of Social Science for assessment methods in that course.

Teaching methods

On-campus students experience a variety of teaching approaches including lectures, tutorials, online activities and video-linked or podcast virtual classes. The method of teaching may vary from unit to unit.

Our online study option is highly interactive and strives to promote collaboration and a sense of community. Students may receive a combination of podcast or video-linked lectures, electronic study materials, workshops, online discussion forums and virtual classes. The method of teaching may vary from unit to unit.

Attendance at on-campus workshops is a requirement of the Bachelor of Laws for on-campus and online students. The workshops provide students with an opportunity to network, engage in a range of learning experiences and skills required at an LLB level that cannot be taught effectively solely online, and meet key representatives of the legal profession who address issues of contemporary legal practice and professional conduct. For more information, go to law workshops.

Career opportunities

Graduates can pursue career opportunities that combine knowledge of social science and law; and those specific to each discipline.

For social science: professional roles in social welfare, community development, or in policy-related areas of government departments and the private sector.

For law: as barristers or solicitors; or in law-related areas in private, corporate, or government organisations.

Professional placement

You may undertake voluntary legal experience and professional placement with legal firms or offices, to complement your practical legal skills and become familiar with the issues facing working lawyers; or within environments suited to the exploration of social science careers such as government departments or non-government community organisations.

Professional recognition

The Bachelor of Laws 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.

Students who intend to practise law outside Australia should check with the relevant country’s admission body to confirm their practising requirements.
