A double degree of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws gives you exposure to multiple disciplines, increasing your employability. The Bachelor of Arts degree allows you to study across several skill and knowledge-bases in many different fields of study with plenty of flexibility. By combining this with a Bachelor of Laws, your opportunities for employment will expand, as well as the areas of possible employment. By completing a double degree, you will graduate sooner than if you were to complete two separate degrees.

The different areas of law you will explore throughout the degree include criminal law, legal conflict and resolution and legal professional practice and ethics. This is then combined with an Arts major of your choice.

When graduating with a double degree, you will receive a separate testament (official certificate) for each degree.
