CB94 - Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts

Overview

Course Overview

The Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts course provides you with double qualifications and skills that are well regarded in both the private and public sectors. The Bachelor of Arts provides you with a multidisciplinary education that encourages you to gain knowledge in a range of humanities and social science disciplines. You will explore disciplines that study the way humans recognise, record and debate human practices, meanings and values. This will aid you in developing contemporary understandings both of the human condition and of how society operates. The Bachelor of Laws course satisfies the academic requirement for admission as a legal practitioner. Law graduates are also required to undergo a period of practical legal training before admission as a legal practitioner in Australia. A law degree will provide you with the qualifications to pursue a number of careers in the field of law, including solicitor, barrister, government legal officer, judicial officer, law academic, company director, in-house counsel, diplomat and politician.
