The field of science is continuously evolving, with fields such as genetics, biotechnology and public health and safety being underpinned by a rigorous legal framework. Designed to be completed over five years of full-time study, the combined Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Science is perfect for students who wish to combine their love of the law with their passion for science.When you undertake the legal component of your degree, you will receive an education that has been planned in collaboration with some of Australia’s top judges, barristers and solicitors. A focus on experiential learning also means that you have multiple opportunities to develop valuable skills such as public speaking, advocacy, dispute resolution and mooting.The scientific elements of your double degree are equally practical. Over the course of your studies, you will complete 5 core Science courses and 7 courses to form a Science stream in Biology & Environment, Environment & Heritage, Human & Medical Science or Multidisciplinary Science. Developing your skills in data analysis and research, you will then undertake a Science Internship in your third year.
