Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
The Law curriculum has been developed by members of the judiciary, the legal profession and senior staff from some of Australia's leading universities. It is designed to satisfy both state and national professional admission requirements. Once admitted, law graduates will be able to work as solicitors or barristers, allowing them to give legal advice and appear in court. The Law and Arts (Politics and Journalism) double degree combines thorough training in law with studies in the areas of politics and journalism.
The structure of this course includes 3 core curriculum courses (units), compulsory and elective law courses, politics and international relations courses (3 compulsory and 3 elective) and communication and media courses (3 compulsory and 3 elective). The politics/journalism courses are covered in combination with law in the first 3 years of the degree. The final 2 years of the degree contain only law courses.
