Bachelor of Laws Bachelor of Arts in International Studies

The Bachelor of Laws Bachelor of Arts in International Studies takes a global approach to the study of law and culture with a requirement for students to spend a year overseas. Years 1–3 of the course are conducted at UTS, and encompass legal studies core subjects and electives/majors, including the new Legal Futures and Technology major.

In the International Studies component, students select a country major that guides their choice of language and culture subjects in preparation for their overseas experience. Fourth-year students then spend two sessions overseas at a UTS partner university in their chosen country or region, placing their theoretical learning in context.

In addition to immersing students in another culture, the in-country study program also delivers hands-on experience with cross-cultural legal issues, preparing students for international legal roles or to provide legal expertise for international organisations or foreign investors. This course also meets the academic requirements for admission to practise law in NSW.
