Combining an Arts degree with a Law degree enhances your understanding of the context in which the law operates. In the Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Laws course you will study core units of study in Law including Commercial Law, Criminal Law, Contract, Legal Practice and Ethics, Taxation, Society and Civil Rights. You will also be able to study areas such as history, sociology, philosophy, politics or literature through the Arts component of the degree.
Studies in the Arts enables you to develop some of the most important skills a student can gain at University – becoming an expert at managing and communicating knowledge and developing critical analysis skills and systematic thinking. This course will provide a combination of a broad range of specialised and general skills often demanded by today’s employers.
The Faculty of Arts and Education and the Faculty of Business and Law are responsible for this combined course, which leads to the awards of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws.
A Law degree, especially when combined with another degree, such as Arts, Commerce, Management or Science, is a qualification that offers unequalled career opportunities. As an alternative to practising as a barrister or solicitor, you may enter many areas of work including business and management roles in a wide range of organisations, in government services or industrial relations. You may also find roles in research, public administration, diplomatic service, the media, legal aid, law reform or teaching either in schools or universities.
For further information on career outcomes for this combined course, see the entries for Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws.
