The Law component of this program is offered from the Newcastle City campus, NeW Space. The second component of the program may be offered from the Newcastle City campus or Newcastle (Callaghan) campus depending on degree.
Our Bachelor of Laws (Honours) is your entry to a career as a lawyer, or a range of other professions where a passion for justice and attention to detail are key. This degree is offered as a combined program, which means you combine Laws with another degree and get two qualifications in only five years of study.
If you want to be a practising lawyer you can also complete the Diploma in Legal Practice which merges traditional legal education with skills training and practical legal experience. Students who complete the Diploma in Legal Practice will not have to complete postgraduate professional training or a period of practical legal experience before practising as a solicitor, as placement opportunities are available through the program.
You can choose to combine the Bachelor of Laws (Honours) with the following degrees:
Areas of study: Law, plus majors from the relevant combination degree entries.
Career opportunities: Legal practice and employment in government, business, international organisations and management consultancy firms.
Even if you choose not to practise law, a strong legal understanding and the ability to apply logical reasoning means that law graduates are extremely competitive for employment opportunities in a range of different career sectors.
Professional recognition: Accredited law school for the purpose of admission to practise law in NSW. For Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Laws (Honours): The Bachelor of Commerce component does not include accountancy accreditation without additional courses being undertaken.
Practical experience: When you complete the Diploma in Legal Practice, you will be involved with the University of Newcastle Legal Centre which provides hands-on experience with opportunities to work on real cases and gain essential courtroom experience. You’ll undertake 285 hours of simulated exercises and placements with legal practitioners in each of your final two years of study.
Honours: The Law School has an embedded honours program that is available for students. For the non-Law degree: May be available as an additional year (or part-time eqv) to students based on merit.
Fees and charges: Visit the University of Newcastle website for current fee information.
Assumed knowledge: For Law: None. For non-Law degree: Refer to 482001 Bachelor of Global Indigenous Studies, 482010 Bachelor of Arts, 482200 Bachelor of Business, 482300 Bachelor of Commerce, 482350 Bachelor of Communication, 482550 Bachelor of Development Studies, 484020 Bachelor of Science or 484050 Bachelor of Social Science.
