If you have already completed a degree in another discipline this course recognises your prior learning and allows you to condense the law degree to complete it in three years full time, or six years part time. Your law degree is made up of a combination of core (compulsory) and elective units. The core units include the units required for admission to legal practice and research units to provide you with essential skills for practice. You can pursue your interests through a wide range of elective units, for example, family law, succession law, international arbitration, commercial contracts and artificial intelligence, robots and the law. Our final year capstone unit includes a work placement in range of different legal workplaces or a virtual internship with a top-tier firm, providing you with the opportunity to engage with experienced lawyers and undertake authentic legal tasks.

This course is approved by the Queensland Legal Practitioners Admissions Board. If you want to become a lawyer at the end of your degree, you will need to complete further practical legal training (PLT) before you can apply for admission to practice. We offer PLT in the form of the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice.

Study pathways

On successful completion of the Bachelor of Laws (Honours), there are a number of further study options open to you. The Bachelor of Laws (Honours) meets the entry requirements for Practical Legal Training courses for example, the QUT Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice. In addition, successful completion of this course will allow you to pursue postgraduate opportunities through research and coursework based degrees in law. Students admitted to the graduate entry program will automatically receive one year of advanced standing which will allow the student to complete the degree in three years full-time. QUT advanced standing rules apply.
