Combining law with psychological science will give students a unique skill set that will prepare them for work either in the community sector or in commerce and industry. They will also develop analytical, research and communication skills. In the Law component, Griffith Law School offers a professional legal curriculum that focuses on core areas of legal practice and the legal skills that lawyers must have. Students will have the opportunity to choose law electives based on their interests, including clinical courses that emphasise practical legal skills, insights and experience. Students will make connections between law and ethics, legal theory, Indigenous issues, and internationalisation. Students will also develop interdisciplinary understandings of law and legal work. Students will take courses that cover areas such as Crime, Contracts, Property, Corporate Law, Torts and Theories of Law. In the Psychological Science component, students will learn how to apply psychological theories to topics such as thinking and perceiving, motivation, stress, health, criminal activity, and group behaviour. Students will also learn how to evaluate and understand tests that measure intellectual, behavioural and emotional states. Students will develop interpersonal and communication skills and learn about the principles of counselling and core areas of psychology.
