This double degree provides students with the opportunity to combine their study of law with an area of interest drawn from a wide variety of the arts, humanities and social sciences. It thereby gives students a larger variety of career options. Studying law in conjunction with another discipline gives students the potential to take an interdisciplinary approach in both your studies and in your future employment. Students can study an arts major or extended major of their choice. The degree combines excellent communication and analytical skills with a solid foundation in law and has been developed in response to increasing student demand and employer preference for recruitment of double degree graduates.


240 credit points (equivalent to 40 standard units) comprising 96 credit points toward the Bachelor of Arts component, and 144 credit points toward the Bachelor of Laws component. Students must complete one Arts Minor and Major, or one Extended Major, core units and a choice of elective units, as well as core law units, and a selection of law listed or honours units. Students admitted through an articulation program follow a modified program of study.
