The Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Laws double degree is designed to help you achieve skills and an extensive understanding of both degrees in less time than it would take to complete the two degrees separately. This double degree combines theoretical knowledge with practical experience to help you become successful in whichever career pathway you choose.

You can choose from a number of different Commerce majors including Accounting, Business Law, Finance, General Commerce, Information Technology Management, Sustainable Business and Sustainable Economics and Policy. The different areas of Law you will explore throughout the degree include Criminal Law, Legal Conflict and Resolution and Legal Professional Practice and Ethics.

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