The Bachelor of Laws (Graduate Entry) degree is an accelerated program aimed at students who already have a Bachelor’s degree in another field. It is designed to be completed as an accelerated program over three years of full-time study, with five subjects taken per semester in the first two years, and four subjects per semester in your final year.The program has been designed in collaboration with eminent judges, senior barristers and leading solicitors to create a curriculum that is both academically challenging and highly practical. In addition, the School of Law continues to call on prominent members of the profession to assist in teaching, adding further to the highly practical nature of legal education at Notre Dame.Through our Legal Clinic, mentoring program, courtroom visits, mooting and internship programs, our law students are provided with multiple opportunities to experience the law in practice. Furthermore, you cultivate professional legal skills including negotiation, advocacy and alternative dispute resolution within small, interactive class settings.Students are also encouraged to learn outside of the classroom by participating in law competitions and attending professional development events such as our prestigious Eminent Speakers Series. This forum connects students and graduates with leading experts in the discussion of contemporary legal and professional matters.
