What will I learn?

Gain a competitive edge by combining law with tourism and event management, and graduate with two degrees in just five years.

A double degree expands your knowledge and opens doors to a broad range of career opportunities.

You will graduate with honours and an advanced understanding of legal principles of Australian law and the latest advanced legal concepts in Tourism and Event Management. This legal expertise, combined with the knowledge and skills you’ll gain from your specialisation, will set you on track for a leadership career.
