"I loved that SCU offered the Bachelor of Legal and Justice Studies as it wasn’t a degree offered elsewhere. It was a great introductory degree."

Natasha Cook

Bachelor of Legal and Justice Studies

Study Justice Studies

Our law students do more than learn the rules, principles and policies of the legal system. We embrace what we believe to be the law's core concept: justice. 

At Southern Cross University, we feel that a legal education without the idea of justice at its centre is no legal education at all. That is why our Bachelor of Legal and Justice Studies brings together studies in law and politics.  

Ideal for those wanting to work in policy development, paralegal positions, conveyancing, and in the justice sector, it provides a thorough and practical grounding in legal knowledge, as well as a strong understanding of Australian and international politics and society. 

If you have been working professionally in the fields of law and justice, this course will extend your knowledge, skills and expertise.
