As a Bachelor of Laws student, you may apply to transfer to the Honours course in the final year of your degree program. If you choose to complete your honours, the final year will include units in research methodologies and development and the undertaking of research papers. Those units are taken in substitution for some elective units that would otherwise be taken in the Bachelor of Laws degree program.
Completion of the honours course will enhance your research and writing skills, which are important for all legal practitioners. It will also provide a pathway for post-graduate study.
There is no direct entry into this course. This course is only available as an internal transfer from the Bachelor of Laws. Current students who have completed all first, second and third year units with a GPA of >5. 0 may apply for entry.
