Your qualification will be a Bachelor of Laws (Honours)
A Monash Law degree offers the idealistic person a realistic way to make a difference in the world.
Whether you aspire to work in a top-tier law firm, commercial or international law, a community legal centre or as an advocate for justice, a Monash Law degree lets you take the first step.
You will be building a solid foundation for a legal career, with your training beginning on day one.
In this practical Bachelor degree course, you'll also have the option of studying overseas, taking one of many different double degrees and gaining applied legal experience.
In your first year, you'll begin mastering the concepts, procedures and reasoning underpinning the Australian legal system.
Alongside this rigorous training in the basics, throughout your degree you'll also be able to pursue the areas of the law that interest you. You'll benefit from a range of specialist law electives as diverse as 'Negotiation and Conflict Resolution,' 'Media Law' or 'Animal Law.'
This freedom to craft a course that perfectly matches your interests and aspirations extends to a choice of non-law electives across the University, and the option of double degrees in fields as diverse as Arts, Music or Science.
You'll have a degree that is recognised by the Council of Legal Education and includes the prerequisite studies to prepare you for admission to practice as a barrister and solicitor of the Supreme Court of Victoria.
Factor in significant opportunities for hands-on practical experience (including our clinical legal education program); international study (including at the Prato Centre in Italy); a supportive and industry-focused community (including a dynamic Law Students' Society); and the prestige that comes with a degree from a leading law school and you'll have the ideal foundation for a lifelong career.
