Focusing on corporate and commercial law and practical legal problem solving, and offering specialised electives in subjects like IT, accounting, HR and marketing, UC’s Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Business will provide the foundation for your legal and business education.

If you’re an aspiring manager, you’ll gain broad and coherent theoretical and technical knowledge in a range of core business areas and the necessary skills to be effective in today’s changing workplaces.

Our expert teachers will encourage you to develop your advocacy abilities and legal skills, while understanding their connections to the theory and history of law.

Supporting your development as a socially responsible and ethical legal and management professional will be our small class sizes and state-of-the-art facilities, and ties with the National Centre for Corporate Law and National Institute of Governance. You’ll also benefit from the relationships we’ve forged with law firms, the public sector (a huge employer in Canberra) and non-government organisations (NGOs).

What’s more, you’ll also get to apply your talents in the real world with opportunities to complete a law internship and study overseas and be able to fast-track your studies during our winter term.

The UC Bachelor of Laws has professional accreditation with the Supreme Court of the ACT and New South Wales and allows students in their final year of study to begin their Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice.¿
