About this program

Bachelor of Laws (Law Plus)

The study of law is an enriching educational experience that provides intellectual stimulation and an  exposure to decision-making and argumentative skills. The Law Plus programme allows you to choose elective subjects in other disciplines including Politics, History, Psychology, Economics, Maths, Sociology and languages. You can therefore expect to have a wide variety of options open to you upon graduation. 

Law Plus places significant emphasis on the development of practical legal skills including oral and written communication skills, analytical and logical reasoning skills, negotiation, legal research, organisational and teamwork skills, particularly through the lawyering skills modules. Our moot court and appellate court facilities are utilised throughout the programme to develop these skills and ensure our students graduate equipped to deal with working in a legal environment. These skills are of course transferable and of great benefit to those who choose to pursue a career outside of law. 

You will also have the opportunity to participate in Advanced Lawyering projects. These projects provide students with a unique opportunity to engage with community partners and to apply their legal knowledge and skills in a practical manner. Projects vary from year to year and have in the past included topics such as miscarriages of justice, sentencing, Street Law, and legal app development.
