Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Students will learn hands-on, practical skills in Law like critical analysis, written and oral communication, research, negotiation and advocacy, all of which are necessary in succeeding in a legal profession. A background in mathematics equips graduates with the skills to analyse and forecast results in economics, finance, medicine and industrial processes that allow governments and organisations to understand the factors behind important decision-making. By combining the study of Mathematics and Law, students will gain a competitive edge by being able to identify patterns and analyse complex information, develop an ability to interpret data and predict consequential actions, while being acutely aware of legal considerations and the context in which they arise.
5 years full-time or part-time equivalent. The first year of the LLB must be completed full-time, except where faculty approval is given on equity grounds. In the following 4 years of the degree, students enrol in Law subjects and subjects from the other schedules.

Standard entry requirements
DOMESTIC STUDENTS - ATAR-BASED ADMISSION OPTIONS Guaranteed entry selection ranks Entry to this course can be gained with: Minimum ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) International Baccalaureate (IB) Interstate equivalent (such as the Victorian ENTER or Queensland OP) Results in an overseas qualification deemed equivalent to Australian year 12. The minimum score for guaranteed entry (or for consideration if this course has limited places) is an ATAR-Selection Rank of 90 or an IB of 33. This includes the effect of adjustment factors. Adjustment factors, such as the subjects you are studying, the area in which you live or equity and access schemes, are taken into consideration and these will be combined with your ATAR to adjust your selection rank and make it higher than your ATAR. These adjustments used to be called bonus points. ASSUMED KNOWLEDGE AND RECOMMENDED STUDIES The University assumes students will have studied any 2 units of English. Ideally, students will have studied English Advanced.

In order to succeed in your chosen course, it is assumed you have completed relevant subjects in your senior high school studies or other relevant qualifications. This is particularly important for degrees which have a strong basis in Mathematics or Science.
