Bachelor of Laws (Graduate Entry)

Summary

CRICOS course code: 085365A
Level of study: Undergraduate

The Bachelor of Laws (Graduate Entry) program enables those who hold a degree level qualification (other than law) to complete a law degree in three years instead of four. The course provides legal education for the practice of law. In that context, the course provides knowledge of the legal system and legal principles, and cultivates a capacity for legal research, analysis and communication. The course also provides a focus on transnational and comparative legal issues as well as legal issues of special significance to the Northern Territory, including Aboriginal legal issues.
Professional Recognition
The Bachelor of Law (Graduate Entry) degree provides the academic foundation for admission to legal practice in the Northern Territory and elsewhere in Australia. To be admitted to legal practice in Australia, law graduates must also complete the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice (GDLP). Students intending to gain admission to practice are advised to seek advice from the admitting authority in the relevant State or Territory.
Career Opportunities
Graduates of law are not restricted to a career as a solicitor, barrister, prosecutor or judge, if that is not their ambition. A law degree opens up career options in in-house counsel of private and public institutions, teaching, industrial relations, military, police services, politics, human rights, customs, immigration or any public or private sector employment where an in-depth understanding of the law would be an advantage.
