What will I learn?

The University of New England offers a flexible approach to the study of law. UNE boasts one of Australia's largest law schools outside a capital city, as well as being an early adopter of innovative technology in the delivery of its law programs.

Studying law in conjunction with another discipline gives you the potential to take an interdisciplinary approach in both your studies and in your future employment.

A graduate of a Law and Business double degree will take both a legal and commercial approach to situations. This degree provides students with an understanding of how law impacts and regulates the world of business e.g. in the areas of professional accounting, human resource management and agribusiness, among others.

Students who complete the Honours Pathway may be awarded the degree of Bachelor of Laws with Honours. To be admitted to the Honours stream, candidates must have completed 72 credit points of law units at UNE with a grade point average (GPA) of 5.5 or better.

The Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree is accredited by the Legal Profession Admission Board of NSW.

After admission you are then eligible to apply for a practising certificate as a solicitor from the Law Society of NSW or undertake further studies to obtain a practising certificate as a barrister from the Bar Association of NSW.
