What will I learn?

A Bachelor of Laws from UOW equips graduates with a comprehensive legal education; a world-class degree that provides a thorough grounding in the law, as well as a real-world focus on the essential practical skills and the social and ethical context in which the law operates.

We believe that practical experience is a vital part of your legal training. We are the only law school in New South Wales that requires you to complete a legal internship, providing highly valued industry experience.

We are committed to social justice and providing a legal education which engages with the complexities of law's intersection with society.

The Bachelor of Laws at UOW delivers a practical and contextual legal education that prepares graduates not only for traditional careers in the legal profession but also for a wide range of careers in government, business and community organisations – as leaders, innovators and problem solvers.

This degree is available only to graduates of disciplines other than law, with the exception that the degree is available to graduates of law degrees from outside Australia.

What you will study

The Bachelor of Laws (Graduate Entry) is a three-year full-time degree (or can be studied part-time) which covers the prescribed areas of knowledge for future admission to the profession, as well as including a choice of electives. Additionally, an integrated skills program equips graduates with experience in areas such as legal research, interviewing, legal drafting, advocacy and negotiation. Opportunities also exist to undertake subjects through an international exchange program.

Why choose this course

The Bachelor of Laws (Graduate Entry) is the degree to choose if you already hold a degree in an area other than law, and are considering a legal education to either practice law, or further your career in areas of business, government, not-for-profit and international relations.

International law graduates who wish to practice law in Australia may complete this Graduate Entry course to be recognised for admission as a lawyer in Australia (subject to completion of Practical Legal Training).
