Bachelor of Arts (Advanced) with Bachelor of Laws (Honours)
High-level arts study—and the deep insight into modern society it brings—will complement, contextualise and enrich your legal studies. You’ll learn to think innovatively, understand all manner of societal issues more broadly, and communicate powerfully.
On completion of the degree you’ll be uniquely placed to pursue careers in legal practice, government, commerce, industry, academia, social welfare and community organisations. Adding honours will give you an employability edge, particularly in roles involving research.
What will you do?
- Choose from 33 arts majors and develop deep discipline knowledge.
- Partner with an arts academic mentor who’ll support your intellectual development.
- Take arts courses specifically designed for high-achieving students.
- Explore contemporary legal concepts, processes and methods.
- Undertake law internships and optional placements in community clinics.
- Develop deep discipline knowledge in a particular area of law.
- Research and write major research projects in both degrees.
