This double degree provides you with the flexibility to either pursue a purely legal career as a practitioner, or to build a successful career in a field of your interest in the Arts, drawing on your legal skills and knowledge.
A Bachelor of Arts component is, in many ways, the most valuable degree of all. This is because Arts graduates are not as restricted in what they can undertake relative to those with highly specialised degrees. Examples of career paths include management, public relations, foreign affairs, education, business, human resources, research, psychology and archaeology. The employability of Arts graduates is a reflection of the skills they acquire during their study and this is becoming widely acknowledged.
As a Lawyer working as a solicitor/barrister (with the required workplace training), in a legal practice, legal aid agency, advocacy organisation, government department, commerce or management.
