Program overview

From the very first weeks students will do practical law courses and see what it's like to argue a case and provide legal advice. Students will gain valuable skills that they can apply in reasoning, reporting, analysis, negotiation, communication and advocacy to resolve complex legal problems. Students will be involved in mock-trials in our Moot Court, learning what it’s like to act as an advocate and present before a judge. Students will also be guided to reach their potential and become career ready, with opportunities for overseas placements as well as local and national internships and clerkships. In the final year, students will also choose from an industry or clinic placement, a law reform project or high-level research to complete the honours component of their degree.
