The Bachelor of Laws (LLB) is a recognised degree for admission as a lawyer throughout Australia. Whatever their field of interest, the LLB will equip students with the intellectual, critical and practical skills needed in the professional practice of law. This double degree enables students to specialise in areas of the law either through major study, or through a comprehensive range of law electives.

Applicants who do not have the required entry mark are encouraged to apply for the Bachelor of Legal and Justice Studies. If those students achieve the required grade point average during that course, they may then apply for transfer into the double degree.

Career opportunities

Graduates typically work in Australia or overseas as barristers and solicitors in private, corporate or government legal departments. With this double degree, students can specialise within discreet areas of the law by majoring in Criminal Justice, Conveyancing, Civil Practice or Community Justice.

Professional recognition

The Bachelor of Laws fulfils the academic requirements for admission to the legal profession, but professional admission authorities also require law graduates of all universities to complete practical legal training or similar to be eligible for admission. Students who intend to practise law outside Australia should check with the relevant country’s admission body to confirm their admission requirements.

The Bachelor of Legal and Justice Studies, with a major in Conveyancing, is accredited by NSW Fair Trading. See Bachelor of Legal and Justice Studies for more information.

Professional placement

Law students can undertake voluntary legal experience and professional placement with legal firms or offices, to complement their practical legal skills and become familiar with the issues facing working lawyers.
