Bachelor of Communication / Bachelor of Laws (Honours)

Why study communication and law?

Several legal practice areas focus on the media, communication and technology sectors. Mass media and communication technology are increasingly powerful and influential within our society, meaning associated laws and regulations are constantly developing.

The disciplines of laws and communication complement each other, with both serving to develop your analytical problem solving, critical thinking and research skills. Your communications degree will also teach you valuable inquiry and investigation skills, which will be beneficial if you choose to practise as a lawyer.

If you are planning on entering the highly competitive fields of media or telecommunications, a law degree will enhance your communication qualifications and increase your career opportunities.

For more information about the single degree program, take a look at the Bachelor of Communication.

For more detailed program information about the combined Bachelor of Communication/Bachelor of Laws (Honours), please refer to the handbook.
