Overview

Bachelor of Laws

If you’ve aspired to a career in legal practice, then a Bachelor of Laws at the University of Canberra will help get you there in no time. 

The highly practical approach is a marked strength and continues to set the law degree apart from the rest.

With small class sizes, a purpose-built eMoot Court and highly qualified and experienced staff, you’ll be encouraged to develop your advocacy abilities and legal skills while understanding their connection to legal history and law in context.

The course will ground your education in the latest legal innovations, develop your communication and interpersonal skills and allow you to become an agile, ethical and effective legal professional.

If you’ve already completed an Australian Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent, you’ll be able to complete the Bachelor of Laws in 3 years instead of 4

Work Integrated Learning

The course encourages you to apply your talents in the real world, with opportunities to complete a law internship and international study through links with law firms, governments, non-governmental agencies and overseas universities.

You will have the opportunity to choose one law elective, which includes a practical Work Integrated Learning (WIL) based component. 

You’ll also have access to WIL opportunities at the University’s Legal Advice Clinic for Small Business, where students assist legal professionals in providing free legal and financial services to small businesses, residents and students.
