Course Information

If you have an undergraduate degree in another discipline, this graduate entry degree gives you the opportunity for a rewarding career in law.

Designed to produce qualified lawyers with a practical focus, this degree covers all the academic courses required for admission as a legal practitioner in Australia, and provides active learning experiences and practical skills right from your first year. For example, you will observe volunteer lawyers conducting client interviews at an advice clinic operated by Suncoast Community Legal Service.

You will research answers to legal problems, prepare advice and present legal arguments, observe court proceedings, and take part in simulated court presentations in USC's Moot Court. You can further develop your skills by working with Legal Service clients under legal supervision in law professional practice, or undertake a legal internship.

Law Honours is available, usually without extending the time required to complete your degree.
