Designed to be completed over five years of full-time study or part-time equivalent, the combined Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Arts is an accredited degree for admission to legal practice but also allows you to pursue your interest in the Humanities. Choose from a wide range of Arts courses, such as History, Journalism, Philosophy, Sociology, Theatre Studies, Applied Psychology and Writing.
For example, students majoring in Applied Psychology will develop their insights into human behaviour. This skill will prove particularly useful when assembling a criminal profile or cross-examining a witness. Similarly, law students who undertake a major in Film & Screen Production will have more significant insights than their counterparts when dealing with Entertainment Law.
Finally, students who wish to work in not-for-profits or NGOs will find that a major in Social Justice or Politics & International Relations sets them apart from the crowd.
Regardless of the specialist area that you dream of pursuing, a combined degree in Law and Arts will ensure your legal training is supplemented by practical insights in your chosen industry.
Furthermore, practical components such as mentoring, client interview competitions, internships, mock trials, and international commercial dispute resolution programs provide the perfect opportunity to test your skills in a real-world setting.
