Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Laws

University of Sydney

The Combined Law program allows students to study the Bachelor of Laws (LLB) in conjunction with another degree. The Bachelor of Arts allows students the opportunity to study a broad range of subject areas and tailor the degree to suit their interests while the LLB is designed to provide a legal education that is not only challenging and rewarding but one that equips graduates for the demands of the 21st century. If students have completed at least one year of a recognised tertiary qualification, they will be considered on the better of their ATAR or tertiary qualification. Recent experience suggests that an ATAR of 99.50 or a tertiary grade point average in the distinction range is necessary to gain entry, although this will vary according to the strength of the field of applicants.
