What will I learn?

This combined Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Commerce double degree draws upon the talents of both the School of Law and the School of Business. For students who wish to become lawyers, having a solid understanding of business can help you achieve success both in your own legal practice as well as managing the business affairs of your clients. Alternatively, if you are unsure whether you wish to work in the law, accounting or business, this double degree is the perfect opportunity to clarify your own career direction.

Why study this degree?

When you undertake a Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Commerce from The University of Notre Dame Australia, you are joining a Law School with a tradition of delivering career-focused legal training. In fact, it is for this reason that our School of Law has been ranked Number One in New South Wales for Overall Quality of Educational Experience, Teaching Quality, Overall Learner Engagement, and Student Support.

Designed and created by legal educators with a wealth of professional experience, this double
degree places a strong focus on experiential and case-based learning. When undertaking the legal component of the degree, you will find that Notre Dame’s small class sizes give you ample
opportunity to engage in spirited debate and discussion.

Furthermore, we also encourage students to participate in our Mentorship Program. Assisting with your professional growth and the evaluation of your plans and decisions, our mentors include highly- respected partners from firms such as Carroll & O’Dea, Manning Lawyers, and Makinson d’Apice, as well as professionals from the Supreme Court of New South Wales, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and the Fair Work Ombudsman.

Similarly, the inclusion of a Business Internship in the Commerce component of your degree forms yet another opportunity for you to implement the skills you have learned at The University of Notre Dame Australia in a real working context. Beginning with seminars in career planning and professional development, as well as presentations from industry leaders, you can undertake your placement in such organisations as the Commonwealth Bank, the New South Wales Parliament and the Nine Network.
