School of Law
Studying law at Charles Darwin University means studying at a university with a proud reputation for the quality of its teaching and innovative programs.
The courses will provide you with a solid theoretical and practical legal education and satisfy the academic requirements for admission to professional practice.
While the study of law leads to a career as a solicitor or barrister, it also offers you a multitude of career paths, including politics, the public service, or industrial relations. It can also lead to career opportunities in the public or private sector where an in-depth understanding of the law would be an advantage.
Law courses at CDU encourage an appreciation of legal issues of special significance to the Northern Territory, including Aboriginal legal issues and South East Asian law.
If you are an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, you can undertake a pre-law program as a basis for admission to and preparation for a full law degree program.
Our undergraduate courses give you the skills to be an effective legal practioner.
