Graduation

Graduation Ceremony
A graduation ceremony is held for law graduands in May and November of each year. To graduate in a ceremony, a student must complete degree requirements at least eight weeks prior to the ceremony date. The 2013 ceremonies will be held on Friday 24 May and Friday 29 November.

Graduation invitation packages (e-invitations) are emailed to graduands approximately three weeks prior to the ceremony date. It is therefore important that you check your email address regularly and ensure your details are up to date. For further details on the formal requirements of the ceremony, the latest ceremony schedule and information on graduating in absentia, please visit the Graduations Office.

Honours
Students who complete the requirements of the Bachelor of Laws prior to Semester 2 2013 will be awarded Honours on the basis of their Weighted Average Mark (WAM). For the purpose of WAM calculation, all law units of study are weighted equally and the WAM is therefore the mean (average) of results in all law units of study attempted. Units of study with a result of Absent Fail (AF) or Discontinued – Fail (DF) are assigned a mark of zero (0) for the purpose of WAM calculation. Units of study with a result of Discontinued –Not Fail (DNF), assessed on a pass/fail basis or undertaken at other institutions (exchange program, cross-institutional study, etc.) do not contribute towards the WAM. Two levels of honours are awarded: Honours Class I (WAM of 75% and above) and Honours Class II (WAM of 70% - 74.9%). Students with a WAM below 70% are awarded the degree at ‘Pass’ level.

Students who complete the requirements of the Bachelor of Laws from Semester 2 2013 onwards will be awarded Honours subject to the new Honours resolutions. To qualify for enrolment in the ’New’ Honours Program, students will be selected in their penultimate law year based on a weighted average mark (WAM) of at least 75%, averaged out across all law compulsory units with the exception of Foundations of Law. The exact WAM will be determined by the Honours Committee on an annual basis. Entry to the program will be competitive and the number of places each year will be limited and dependent upon available resources. Once enrolled, students will be assessed by a dissertation completed under academic supervision. For further information please visit 'New' Honours Program.
