QUT’s Bachelor of Laws (Honours) is a higher-level qualification than a bachelor degree, as it has honours-level content integrated throughout the course. The honours units are integrated from years 2 to 4 and help our graduates remain ahead of the pack in a competitive legal industry. You will complete the academic law units required for admission to legal practice and will develop legal skills such as interviewing, negotiation, drafting and advocacy. You will also choose from a range of introductory, general and advanced elective units to suit your career goals and gain practical skills and experience. See the ‘Details and units’ tab for more information about electives.
Our final year capstone unit includes a work placement in range of different legal workplaces or a virtual internship with a top-tier firm, providing you with the opportunity to engage with experienced lawyers and undertake authentic legal tasks. In 2019 students are undertaking the virtual internship with MinterEllison.Flexible delivery
