Combining a Bachelor of Laws with a complementary science degree is an excellent way to enhance your understanding of the context in which the law operates. As a graduate of Deakin’s Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Laws, you’ll be sought after for specialist roles in areas where law and science meet.
The Bachelor of Science lets you start with a broad-based program in your first year, so you can experience the different areas science has to offer. You can choose from major sequences such cell biology, chemistry, environmental science or mathematical modelling.
Led by a team of academics who are experts in their field, our science programs offer choice in a broad range of subject areas. Science at Deakin is not just about lab work, you’ll have access to the latest research findings, develop skills in evidence-based decision making, and gain real-life work experience through our innovative practical programs.
Deakin’s Bachelor of Laws (LLB) gives you the robust training and recognised qualifications you need to launch your career as a first-class legal practitioner. You will receive sound university training in all of the major areas of legal practice, such as contract, torts, business, and criminal law. Throughout the degree you’ll develop legal skills including negotiation, mediation, preparing for court appearances, legal drafting, and statutory interpretation.
The law stream of this degree satisfies the university component of the requirements to become an Australian Lawyer. You will then complete an additional year of work placement as a legal trainee, or undertake a practical legal training course.
