Bachelor of Science / Bachelor of Laws

University of Wollongong

Students will learn practical skills in Law like critical analysis, written and oral communication, research, negotiation and advocacy, all of which are necessary for succeeding in a legal profession. In this double degree combination, students will gain a competitive edge by being able to recognise how law functions in social and scientific contexts. Combining science and law allows students to tackle projects such as environmental planning, or look at the legal implications of introducing new technology. Students can choose to specialise in one specific area of science or choose to work in corporate advisory roles around social responsibility. This combination of study will develop logical and independent thinking, creative problem-solving, organisational abilities, numeracy and statistical literacy.
