What will I learn?

This double degree program allows graduates to span both the legal and scientific worlds in a way that single degree graduates cannot.

You can design your own academic program within the Bachelor of Science course structure, which must include a Science major. This can be combined with study in a wide variety of legal disciplines.

Tailor your studies at Western Sydney University to your specific goals by combining our accredited Bachelor of Laws degree with another degree. When you graduate after five years, you have two degrees, and excellent legal skills relevant to professional employment.

The law component provides you with professional legal skills including the ability to analyse legal material, understand fundamental legal principles, understand the relationship between law and society, and gain general analytical skills for critical thinking and problem solving. Special emphasis is placed on the development of skills in advocacy, negotiation, legal drafting and legal research.

Your practical legal skills will be further developed using our extensive law library, computer-based law research lab and state-of-the-art moot courts located on our Campbelltown and Parramatta campuses. You will have the opportunity, with supervision, to undertake projects for organisations that have limited resources.
