What will I learn?

Medical and health practice, medical and biological research, and industrial and commercial enterprise are all areas of medical science where legal expertise is of crucial importance.

With the Bachelor of Medical Science Bachelor of Laws, students can prepare for specialist roles in the field of health care law or opt to pursue two discrete qualifications in medical science and law. Elective subjects in biomedicine, mental health or intellectual property tailor the degree to either a health care or research focus, or students can pursue a broad introduction to a range of health and law concepts by choosing subjects that correspond to their individual interests.

The Legal Futures and Technology major enables the development of niche expertise in emerging technologies that are impacting the legal sector, such as smart contracts, AI and blockchain. The Bachelor of Laws satisfies the academic requirements for admission to practise law in NSW.
