Laws and Computer Science

Bachelor degree (honours)/Bachelor degree

This double degree presents opportunities for students in the evolving fields of legislative responses to computer science innovation, and the computerisation of legal decision-making and procedures.

The study of Law provides you with the research, analytical and communication skills used in the legal profession. It gives you a solid foundation in the concepts, procedures and reasoning underpinning the Australian legal system.

The Computer Science degree is designed for students wishing to study computing in depth, and particularly the theory and practice of applying computers and software to problem-solving.
