A quality education in the law, distinguished by rigour, depth and conceptual sophistication, ensuring your success in the legal profession.

This prestigious, honours-level undergraduate program offers a thorough understanding of the concepts, principles, policies and values of the law, both in Australia and other jurisdictions. It develops outstanding skills in critical analysis, thought and argument – skills which will be valuable in whatever career path you choose.
