Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Laws

La Trobe University

Students combine studies in accounting, economics, finance, management and marketing with the thorough knowledge of the law you need for legal practice in this double degree. La Trobe's Bachelor of Commerce offers a choice of five majors: accounting, economics, finance, management or marketing. The Professional Communication and Practice in Business program provides opportunities to engage with business professionals through internships, practicums, case studies, travel tours, company visits and professional industry-led seminars. These experiences give students the chance to discuss current business issues and see how studies apply in a professional environment. We focus on developing skills in critical thinking, analysis, advocacy, mediation and negotiation, and allow students to build a specialised degree through their elective choices. Students will also have the chance to work with judges and magistrates, and undertake placements in legal workplaces.
