Bachelor of IT / Bachelor of Laws (BIT/LLB)
In this combined degree, students will be working towards two degrees. This normally takes seven years; by combining the degrees students will be able to complete the requirements for both in six years.
The Bachelor of Information Technology/Bachelor of Laws is a 6-year award course. The degree will produce graduates who have an extensive technical understanding of both IT and Law.
Graduates from this degree will be well equipped to tackle legal issues that have become more prevalent as technology has progressed, such as copyright, privacy, data collection, and censorship and could help shape policy in these areas. Similarly, IT professionals could benefit greatly from a working knowledge of law when dealing with contracts, patents, share holders or working in international markets.
Bridging the gap between these two domains will be vital in the future, and graduates from this combined degree will be highly sought after in both professions.
