The new Bachelor of Laws (Honours) degree – available from 1 January 2015

The Law Faculty has undertaken a major curriculum review of the Bachelor of Laws degree. Along with all other Australian law schools, we are adjusting our course in response to the needs of the legal profession and to ensure it is aligned with contemporary developments in legal education. The course is also compliant with the AQF qualification requirements. The review was undertaken partly in response to the need for periodic rejuvenation of courses; including alignment with contemporary developments in legal education; and was also driven by external factors, most notably the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).

From 1 January 2015, all new students will be enrolling in our new Bachelor of Laws (Honours) degree, which is an AQF level 8.  This means that you will be required to undertake a research unit and a commercial law unit, as part of your degree. 

Find out more about the new Bachelor of Laws (Honours) degree. See also the Undergraduate Course Guide for 2015.
