Bachelor of Sports Media / Bachelor of Laws

University of Canberra

The Bachelor of Sports Media / Bachelor of Laws degree provides students with an understanding of the principles, knowledge and skills involved in becoming a competent sports journalist and prepares students for employment in the legal profession as either solicitors or barristers. The law component is fully accredited as a basis for admission to practice law in Australia. The focus is upon corporate and commercial law, with minors in other areas to cater for student preferences. The teaching program is enhanced by research strengths with student opportunities to be involved in UC's National Centre for Corporate Law, the National Institute of Governance and e-Justice and e-Court Networks. There are opportunities for law internships and international study through linkages with law firms, governments and overseas universities.

Further information:

Admission to a double degree course will ensure that the student will be permitted to proceed in the Bachelor of Laws component of the course. However, before the final two years (full time equivalent) of the Bachelor of Laws course can be undertaken, students undertaking a double degree must have satisfied the requirement for the first degree in the double degree course. Students undertaking the double degree course will be awarded the first degree in the double degree course upon completion of the academic requirements for that course.
