No industry can escape the legal context in which all businesses and organisations must operate. Having a sound understanding of commercial law and the ability to manage legal risk is a skill valued by employers both in the private and public sector.
Students will study the foundations of law including legal framework, legal process, legal writing and research, torts and trade practices, competition and consumer protection law. Students can then tailor the major to suit their area of interest with three electives including property, employment, banking, mining, international trade and intellectual property, among others. While this major does not qualify students to become practising lawyers, graduates will qualify for entry to Bachelor of Laws (Y11) with a credit transfer for the professionally accredited law units already studied within the last 10 years.
