The Bachelor of Laws program is an accredited degree for admission to legal practice. It combines an excellent coverage of underlying legal and ethical principles with an explanation of how those principles are applied in legal practice. The Bachelor of Philosophy program offers students an all-round education in the history of philosophy and various philosophical disciplines including major topics and thinkers in contemporary philosophy. It also includes treatment of the Catholic philosophical tradition. Study in this double degree will encourage development of high-level critical thinking skills, linguistic ability and the ability to defend a reasoned point of view.
