What will I learn?

The field of biomedical science is a rapidly-evolving discipline with a range of exciting career opportunities. However, the journey from the laboratory to patient is a complex one, taking an average of 15 years for research evidence to reach clinical practice. A Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Biomedical Science will give you the tools to improve this transition.

Our combined Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Biomedical Science has been designed to be completed over five years of full-time study, allowing you to develop your knowledge in the field of biomedical science and its role within the legal context.

Accredited by Legal Practice Board of Western Australia, the Law component of your degree places a heavy focus on experiential learning. Designed in conjunction with some of the nation’s leading legal experts, this program covers a vast array of legal subjects such as Criminal Law, Commercial Law and Conveyancing. As a student in the School of Law, your theoretical knowledge will be bolstered with practical exercises such as mooting, public speaking, dispute resolution, and client interview competitions.

In the Biomedical Science component of your studies, you will have the opportunity to combine the methodologies learned in Law, with an understanding of Developmental Psychology, Pathology, Neuroscience and more.
