Do you want to start your law degree? ACU offers a flexible, work-friendly model of day and evening classes to suit your busy lifestyle. You can study via part-time evening classes or full-time weekdays, or mix this up to fit your study and work schedule.
The Bachelor of Laws is designed to produce well-rounded graduates ready for legal practice and a range of professional careers in an increasingly global environment. You can pursue a range of legal careers including:
- private practice as a solicitor or barrister
- legal officer in the public sector
- in-house counsel for a wide range of organisations including corporations, regulatory authorities and NGOs.
Typically, you develop specialisations in different fields of law throughout you career – from criminal law to family law; from environmental law to corporations law, from international trade to entertainment law.
As part of this degree you complete up to 160 hours of pro bono work (after your first year), providing you with firsthand experience of the legal system while allowing you to contribute to the common good.
