What will I learn?

This degree is designed for students who are passionate about both the Law and Science, and are interested in learning about the connection between the two.

The Law degree aims to develop graduates who have excellent analytical skills, a capacity for scholarly research, effective oral and written communication skills, and a commitment to personal and professional development, ethical practice and social responsibility. In addition to developing critical and analytical skills, Law students can gain real-world perspective by undertaking an internship and practical legal experience in our community legal centre. This is complemented by hands-on learning and a strong research focus in the Advanced Science degree, where you can tailor coursework to your aptitude and interests while deepening your understanding of scientific inquiry.
