Why study Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Laws?

You can have it all - nourish your creative side, while testing your intellectual rigour with a law degree that provides a recognised tertiary path into the legal profession.

The entertainment industry creates unique legal and management challenges that require specialised knowledge. This double degree offers two very distinct areas of study that enable you to combine the expertise, skills and knowledge of a law degree with continued training in performance and music studies.

The music degree has a focus on music performance. Jazz and popular studies students travel to Italy and New York in alternate years to study and perform with world-renowned musicians such as James Morrison, Claire Bowditch, Don Burrows, Vince Jones, George Garzoni and Aaron Goldberg.

Monash Law School is ranked in the world's top 15 law schools by QS World University Rankings. You can gain valuable clinical experience by working under expert supervision with real clients on real cases at one of two community legal centres which partner with Monash Law School, and by undertaking internships through the Castan Centre for Human Rights. For an international perspective, you can study a semester at the Monash Prato Centre in Italy or Monash University Malaysia, or investigate our range of international internships and exchange opportunities to partner universities.

Our law graduates make a difference. From Young Australian of the Year, Hugh Evans, to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Victoria, the Honourable Marilyn Warren AC, we can proudly say that Monash Law will take you places.
