This program allows students to combine law studies with core units in accounting, finance, management and marketing, and then complete a major to develop depth in their chosen commerce discipline. Together they will give students a thorough legal and commercial understanding of business and trade, and make them evidence-driven, work-ready business professionals. Macquarie law provides a solid foundation in established areas of law such as constitutional law, contract law and international law. It involves an innovative approach to legal education and scholarship, highlighting how the law operates in a changing, globalised world. Students gain knowledge of commercial legal principles and the critical and analytic skills to apply those principles in a variety of contexts.
