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 Economics 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. Specialised career fields include compliance, securities regulation and economic analysis. 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 Economics will give you a comprehensive understanding of the overall context of business and government, and the high-level technical skills to analyse economic and social data and events. You will gain an excellent grounding in economic theory and business statistics, completing a major in economics, agricultural and resource economics, financial economics or the more statistically based econometrics.
