Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and Bachelor of Global Studies

This exciting double degree course is for students who aspire to be leaders in social change and wishing to fulfill the academic requirements for admission to practice as a lawyer in Australia. Combining the study of challenges confronting global communities, such as peace and conflict; the rich-poor gap; and crime and justice with studies in Law you will gain the skills to understand the complex challenges facing cultures and communities around the world and the opportunity to apply your knowledge to affect change.

This course leads to two separate degrees:

  • the Bachelor of Laws (Honours), and
  • Bachelor of Global Studies.

You will gain the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field, separately, or to combine the two in your chosen work.

You will acquire a solid foundation in the concepts, procedures, and reasoning underpinning the Australian legal system and the research, analytical and communication skills of the legal profession. The elective component gives you the flexibility to choose from a wide range of specialist units. The opportunity exists to participate in international learning experiences, through on-campus curricula and through off-campus international exchange and study abroad experiences, internships locally and internationally, and a clinical legal education program to undertake work-based learning.
