Program handbook

Description

Within the combined degree program, students study a combination of Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Laws (Honours) courses over a period of five years full-time. On completion of the first three years students will have completed all the courses required for the Bachelor of Commerce degree. In the final two years of the combined degree program students complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and may enrol in these two years on a less than full time basis.

Students completing this combined degree program become specialists in Commerce and meet the academic requirements to practice law in NSW. However, students wishing to practice law must also complete postgraduate professional training approved by the Legal Profession Admission Board. Alternatively, students completing this degree may apply for entry to the Bachelor of Laws (Honours)/Diploma of Legal Practice Program - see separate handbook entry - which allows immediate admission to legal practice on graduation.

Commencement in this program is only available in Semester 1. Due to timetabling issues this program is not available for a Semester 2 commencement.
