About this course

This four year Law course provides an accredited professional qualification in Law, but also requires students to complete subjects in another non-law discipline of choice such as Science, Politics, Media and Communication Studies or Commerce, without having to complete a separate degree in that discipline. The program offers an innovative, high quality legal education with a social justice perspective and a real emphasis on hands-on experiences. It includes all the compulsory law subjects required by the Victorian Legal Admissions Board for admission to the legal profession as an Australian lawyer in Victoria and a wide range of law electives, many with a practical skills component, such as advocacy and negotiation. There are also a number of Clinical Legal Education subjects on offer. This program is designed for school leavers and tertiary students who have not yet completed an undergraduate degree.
