The University of Notre Dame Australia

Fremantle , Fremantle ,Australia

Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Science

Scientists and lawyers have much in common. Scientific minds are curious, questioning the status quo and looking for new answers and ways of thinking. Similarly, legal professionals espouse that same sense of enquiry, constantly searching for innovative ways to solve legal problems.  When you undertake a Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Science from The University of Notre Dame Australia, you have the opportunity to explore the many synergies between these two exciting fields.

The field of science is continuously evolving, with fields such as genetics, biotechnology and public health and safety being underpinned by a rigorous legal framework. Designed to be completed over five years of full-time study, the combined Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Science is perfect for students who wish to combine their love of the law with their passion for science.
When you undertake the legal component of your degree, you will receive an education that has been planned in collaboration with some of Australia’s top judges, barristers and solicitors. A focus on experiential learning also means that you have multiple opportunities to develop valuable skills such as public speaking, advocacy, dispute resolution and mooting.

The scientific elements of your double degree are equally practical. Over the course of your studies, you may choose to major in a scientific discipline such as Archaeology, Biology, Environmental Science, Geography, or Human Biology. Developing your skills in data analysis and research, you will then undertake a Science Internship in your third year. Held over six weeks, this industry placement assigns you to a government department or private organisation in Western Australia, nationally, or internationally, where you are expected to apply the expertise you have gained so far.
As a graduate of the Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Science, you will gain a sound practical and theoretical understanding of both scientific and legal disciplines. As such, graduates can expect to find employment in a variety of roles including pharmaceutical and biotechnical research and development, environment regulation, scientific patents and more.
