About this course

This program combines humanities with law and you'll graduate prepared to bring about meaningful change, wherever your future career path leads.

Your humanities studies have a strong, critical focus on the key intellectual movements that have shaped Western civilisation, from antiquity to the current day. You'll examine influential works of literature, art, music, politics, law and religion, and graduate equipped with knowledge and insights applicable to many of today's social issues, along with the collaborative and persuasive skills to make positive differences.

Your Bachelor of Laws program is designed to develop a high-level understanding of the law, along with personal and professional abilities that can be transferred across a wide range of careers.

Courses are taught in collaborative group and seminar-style active learning environments especially created for modern-day law students, which also provide the opportunity to test your knowledge with peers and teachers.
