Area of study
Law

The primary aim of this course is to provide a legal education for the practice of law. In that context, the course aims to provide knowledge of the legal system and legal principles, and to cultivate a capacity for legal research, analysis and communication. The course also provides international and theoretical perspectives on the law and encourages an appreciation of legal issues of special significance to the Northern Territory, including Aboriginal legal issues.

The courses can also be studied in the external mode. External students have access to live online tutorials as well as online access to the recordings of all lectures, enabling them to complete the course from anywhere in the world.

Graduates of law are not restricted to a career as a solicitor or barrister, if that is not their ambition. A law degree opens up career options in diverse areas, including in-house counsel of private and public institutions, in teaching, industrial relations, the military, police services, politics, human rights, customs, immigration an in any public or private sector employment where an in-depth understanding of the law is an advantage.

Professional recognition

The Bachelor of Laws is accredited by the Legal Practitioners Admission Board of the Northern Territory and provides the academic foundation for admission to legal practice in the Northern Territory and elsewhere in Australia. To be admitted to legal practice in Australia, law graduates must complete further practical legal training. Students intending to gain admission to practice are advised to seek advice from the admitting authority in the relevant State or Territory.
