Course Information

 If you’ve always aspired to a career in legal practice, then the Bachelor of Laws at UC will get you there in minimum time. Our highly practical approach is a marked strength and continues to set our law degree apart from those of other universities. With small class sizes and highly qualified and experienced staff, you’ll be encouraged to develop your advocacy abilities and legal skills while understanding their connection to the theory and history of law.

You can tailor your individual study program by selecting from a variety of electives across many different areas of law and even choose to accelerate your studies by learning through the winter term. The course will ground your legal education in the broader social and economic context and support your development as a socially responsible and ethical legal professional.

The course encourages you to apply your talents in the real world, with opportunities to complete a law internship and international study through links with law firms, governments, non-governmental agencies and overseas universities. Students must choose one law elective which includes a practical Work Integrated Learning (WIL) based component. Past student internship examples have included time at small, medium and large law firms, community legal centres, government departments (both ACT and federal), courts, community organisations, such as Victim Support ACT, and overseas placements in the US at The Carter Center and the Office of the State Public Defender (California).

You’ll also have access to WIL opportunities at the University’s Legal Advice Clinic for Small Business and the Health-Justice Legal Advice Clinic, where students assist legal professionals in providing free legal and financial services to small businesses, local residents and students. Legal Aid ACT also has a regular presence on campus, which presents many unique internship prospects.
