Course sub-headings

Course overview

Combining another degree with a Bachelor of Laws is an excellent way to enhance understanding of the context in which the law operates. In the Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Laws combined course, students can combine studies in law with studies in science, such as biology, biological chemistry, chemistry, environmental science, mathematical modelling, or zoology. The Faculty of Science, Engineering and Built Environment and the Faculty of Business and Law are responsible for this combined course, which leads to the awards of Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Laws.

Units in the course may include assessment hurdle requirements.
