The Bachelor of Laws (Honours) program is offered on-campus on a full-time basis to Domestic and International students using the in-person mode of delivery.
To be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each standard study period. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program is 30 credit points.
Trimester 1 and Trimester 2 are deemed standard study periods. As Trimester 3 is a non-standard study period, continuing students moving from one year to the next will not be required to study during this trimester to be eligible for student income support.
Domestic students who commence in Trimester 3 may be eligible for student income support from the onset of study provided they are enrolled full-time in this study period.
Please refer to the Australian Government website for more details.
The Bachelor of Laws (Honours) provides the opportunity for optional work-integrated learning through its variety of Clinic courses.

You will be prepared for a rewarding career as a solicitor or barrister after gaining professional recognition. Opportunities also exist within the business and government realms in such disciplines as academia, administration, banking, finance, industrial relations, management and marketing.
