Laws and Commerce - L3005
Bachelor degree (honours)/Bachelor degree
Whether it's working for a multinational or starting your own business, a degree in law and another in commerce will give you a powerful kick-start to the future.
Aimed at ambitious high-achievers, this double degree course will make you an evidence-driven, ready to go business law professional.
You will gain a solid foundation in the Australian legal system and the research, analytical and communication skills of the legal profession. Combine this with a broad foundation in accounting, finance, economics, management and marketing, and a major of your choice and you will have a thorough legal and commercial understanding of business and trade.
This course leads to two separate degrees:
- the Bachelor of Laws (Honours), and
- the Bachelor of Commerce.
You will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in your chosen work.
You can undertake specialist commercial law units such as corporations law, international law and business transactions, taxation law and industrial bargaining and arbitration, which will complement a solid grounding provided in both domestic and international law.
The commerce component offers choices in actuarial studies, business modelling, econometrics and business statistics, economics, finance, financial insurance mathematics, international commerce, management studies, marketing and sustainability.
This combination gives you a wide range of career possibilities in the corporate sector, government and business as well as in legal firms or at the bar. It will also open up opportunities for law graduates to focus on issues of policy and governance in addition to direct legal services. You will find work in legal practice, government, politics, the media, parliament or legislature, merchant banking, international business and money markets.
