Bachelor of Commerce / Bachelor of Laws (Honours)

Why study commerce and law?

The skills and knowledge you will gain studying commerce will complement and enhance the skills you will learn in your law degree. Both degrees teach critical thinking, analytical problem solving, task management and strong communication skills.

Commerce and the financial services industry are heavily regulated. A law degree will improve your understanding of important legislation that is relevant to economics, finance and accounting. Employers also recognise that as a law graduate you have a strong work ethic and are committed to the highest ethical and professional standards.

Many law firms seek out professionals with both legal skills and expertise in commerce, accounting and finance. Lawyers with commerce expertise are also highly valued as in-house lawyers for large companies and government departments.

To review the commerce degree in detail, take a look at the Bachelor of Commerce single degree.
