Course Information

This double degree gives you the best of both worlds, allowing you to learn about contemporary arts and culture, while also developing the skills and knowledge needed for a career in law - whether that's in traditional law or beyond. 

Griffith Law School is proud to rank first in Australia for law in the Academic Ranking of World Universities 2019. Judged on quality of education, staff, research and performance, it means you'll be taught by people who are challenging the status quo and creating new legal knowledge, models and processes. It'll equip you with what you need to make your own mark in the future. 

With a range of arts majors and minors, and hundreds of electives to choose from, you'll have the freedom to create your own unique skill set. Once you complete the double degree, you can choose to specialise in law, combine your skills to work as a specialist media or arts lawyer, or use your arts qualification to explore a wide variety of opportunities. 

Industry and expert connections 

With this double degree, you'll learn how to research across various topics, think critically and constructively, create and manage new knowledge, and communicate your ideas effectively. You'll gain extensive practical experience through moots, engagement with industry and legal clinics through the Griffith Legal Clinic program, offering one of the broadest ranges of clinical options in Australia. 

In your final year, you'll collaborate with your fellow Bachelor of Arts students on an authentic problem, using your learnings and teamwork to deliver a solution. You'll also have the opportunity to complete an internship or work-based learning project or undertake study abroad. We even have a dedicated placement officer to help guide you into an internship that meets your career goals. 

Graduate outcomes 

Your dual qualifications will prepare you for a career in legal practice, specialising in media or arts law, other areas of law, or in the arts, media organisations, business or government.
