The Bachelor of Laws degree provides you with the academic foundation to become a lawyer or work in a range of industries that require legal expertise, including politics, policy, government, business and private legal practice.
At CDU, you can complete a Bachelor of Laws in just three years, with options to study your law degree 100% online, on campus or a mix of both. On graduating, you will be eligible to apply for admission to the legal practice anywhere in Australia.
The Bachelor of Laws teaches you about legal systems and principles in Australia and abroad. You'll gain skills in legal research, analysis and communication, and learn theoretical perspectives on the law. The course also has a unique focus on transnational law (which looks at how laws are applied in more than one jurisdiction) and comparative law (which examines different legal systems from around the world), so you'll gain insight into the legal issues facing today's globalised economies and societies.
If you choose to study law online, you'll have 24/7 access to CDU's online learning platform, recorded lectures and tutorial assistance. You can study where, when and how it suits you.
As the Bachelor of Laws is a competitive course, you're also encouraged to apply for the Associate Degree of Legal Studies or the Diploma of Laws. These programs are an alternative pathway to the Bachelor of Laws.
