A Monash law degree offers a genuine way to make a difference in the world. This straight-from- school law course will enable you to join the next generation of high achieving lawyers, with the ability to solve complex, demanding and interesting problems.

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. You will also be challenged to think critically and creatively, to resist easy answers or simplistic solutions and to develop an ethical and intellectual framework within which to understand what it means to be human, and how this changes over time.

The Bachelor of Politics, Philosophy and Economics (BPPE) is an innovative degree that equips graduates with the intellectual and practical skills necessary to comprehend and navigate the changing world in the 21st century. Graduates will finish their BPPE having mastered the main ideas shaping our understanding of the social world. They will move beyond existing frameworks by studying at the creative intersections between politics, philosophy and economics. This interdisciplinary grounding will culminate in practical, skills-based applications of the conceptual tools provided by the BPPE to produce graduates ready for the challenges and possibilities of the century ahead.
