Bachelor of Commerce / Bachelor of Laws

University of Sydney

The Combined Law program allows students to study the Bachelor of Laws in conjunction with another degree. Students enrol with their partner faculty for the first 3 years and then transfer to the Law School at the completion of their other degree to finish the last 2 years of their law studies. The Bachelor of Commerce provides students with the opportunity to study areas that are of particular relevance to the management and conduct of business, including accounting, business information systems, commercial law, econometrics, economics, finance, industrial relations and human resource management, international business, management, management decision sciences, and marketing. 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.
