The Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts dual degree course enables students to complete both the degrees in five years of full-time study. It provides students with dual qualifications and skills that are well regarded in the private and public sectors. The Bachelor of Arts component of the course offers students a multidisciplinary education that encourages them to gain knowledge in a range of humanities and social science disciplines.

This will aid students in developing a contemporary understanding of both the human condition and how society operates. The Bachelor of Laws component satisfies the academic requirement for admission as a legal practitioner.
