Combining Government and International Relations with Law will help students develop a solid understanding of the world we live in. Students will learn about the forces that shape politics, public administration and international affairs. In the law component, students will study within a number of special subject areas called 'vertical subjects'. Through these subject areas, students will make connections between law and ethics, legal theory, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues, and internationalisation. Students will also develop interdisciplinary understandings of law and legal work. In the Government and International Relations component, students will learn about political institutions and processes, business-government relations, and foreign policy and globalisation. In the first year, students will develop their understanding of politics and international relations. In the second and third years, students will expand this knowledge and complete either a parliamentary internship or a work placement.
