The Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts dual degree course enables students to complete both the degrees in five years of full-time study. It provides students with dual qualifications and skills that are well regarded in the private and public sectors. The Bachelor of Arts component of the course offers students a multidisciplinary education that encourages them to gain knowledge in a range of humanities and social science disciplines. Students will explore disciplines that study the way humans recognise, record and debate human practices, meanings and values. This will aid students in developing a contemporary understanding of both the human condition and how society operates. The Bachelor of Laws component satisfies the academic requirement for admission as a legal practitioner.
