Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Laws
Five years full-time
This combined degree is an excellent academic foundation if you are planning a legal career, and if you are unsure of your professional path. It is a solid undergraduate degree that can open many further study opportunities and professional pathways.
The first three years are spent studying a combination of subjects from the arts
and law faculties. You have the same flexibility to shape your arts studies as
if you were undertaking a single degree, but this is combined with foundation
units in law. Years four and five are then spent completing the Bachelor of Laws
at the Law School.
