What will I learn?

The field of human resource management is one that is underpinned by a complex legal framework. Increasingly, organisations are realising the importance of managing their people in a way that balances their legal and ethical obligations with their business goals. As a result, human resource management now plays an important strategic role, requiring the expertise of professionals with knowledge in people management, the law, and business – issues which you will encounter in our combined Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Human Resource Management program.

As the world of business evolves, companies are realising that their employees are their most valuable asset. When undertaken effectively, human resource management can help companies adapt and thrive in environments of constant economic, sociology, and technological change. Furthermore, because HR managers are increasingly responsible for areas such as training, workplace laws and obligations, succession planning and performance management, a knowledge of the law is invaluable.

At The University of Notre Dame Australia, our Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Human Resource Management is a five-year, full-time degree. Intensely challenging and highly practical, this double degree program will expose you to new ways of thinking, giving you the skills to critically analyse existing resources and determine outside-the-box solutions.

Through the study of subjects such as Commercial Law, Contract Law, and Alternative Dispute Resolution, you will also gain a solid understanding of your legal obligations in the workplace. Similarly, your studies in Employment Relations, Human Resource Policy and Change Management will teach you how to you may apply your knowledge within an organisational structure.

As a graduate you will receive accreditation from the Australian Human Resource Institute and, pending the completion of the relevant practical legal training, the Legal Practice Board of Western Australia.
