About the Course

The future of work is changing, and what it means to be part of the legal profession has expanded. Our highly regarded Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws combined degree program will challenge you to think differently. You will graduate with two degrees, opening the door to a wide range of career opportunities – in law or another area where legal skills are in demand. Today’s law graduates need to be equipped with an agile mindset, and the ability to draw on legal and non-legal insights to solve multi-faceted problems, amidst unprecedented change, shifting client expectations and rapid technological advancements. The Bachelor of Laws (LLB) is one of the most reputable law programs in Australia, highly regarded overseas and your first step towards admissions as a legal practitioner in NSW. Focused on the modern legal environment, you will develop the complex problem solving and analytical skills required to meet the challenges of a contemporary global landscape. The Bachelor of Arts (BA) offers broad choice across more than 45 subject areas, allowing you to build a solid foundation in another area(s), and gain a unique perspective. You study the BA over three years and complete the equivalent of the first year of the LLB at the same time. In years four and five, you will take the remaining compulsory and elective units of the LLB respectively. If you wish to complete honours, you may do so in your fourth year of study, deferring your remaining law units until your fifth year of study.
