Bachelor of Communication / Bachelor of Laws
Tailor your studies to your specific goals by combining our accredited Bachelor of Laws degree with another degree. When you graduate after five years, you have two degrees, and excellent legal skills relevant to professional employment.
The law component provides you with professional legal skills including the ability to analyse legal material, understand fundamental legal principles, understand the relationship between law and society, and gain general analytical skills for critical thinking and problem solving. Special emphasis is placed on the development of skills in advocacy, negotiation, legal drafting and legal research.
Your practical legal skills will be further developed using our extensive law library, computer-based law research lab and state-of-the-art moot courts located.
You will have the opportunity, with supervision, to undertake projects for organisations that have limited resources.
For information on the Bachelor of Communication component of this degree, refer to the major area of study within the Communication degree you are interested in: Advertising; Journalism; Media Arts Production; Public Relations.
