Program description

The University of New England offers a flexible approach to the study of law. UNE boasts one of Australia's largest law schools outside a capital city, as well as being an early adopter of innovative technology in the delivery of its law programs.

Studying law in conjunction with another discipline gives you the potential to take an interdisciplinary approach in both your studies and in your future employment.

Graduates with a law and environmental science background will understand both the legal requirements and principles that prioritise conservation and sustainability of our natural resources.

BEnvSc component: On completion of 144 credit points including all requirements for the BEnvSc component of the double degree program, students with a meritorious academic record may be permitted to enrol for the Bachelor of Science with Honours. The Honours year requires the completion of a research project and the submission of a thesis embodying a literature review and the results of the research project.

Law component: There are a range of employment options from which to choose. Graduates who wish to be admitted to practice as a solicitor, barrister or legal practitioner anywhere in Australia will also have to undertake a course of pratical legal training (PLT). This can consist of approximately half a year's full-time training, undertaken internally or externally, or of equivalent part-time training. In some jurisdictions, it may be possible to do articles of clerkship instead. Because the system adopted varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, enquiries should be made to the admission authority in the state or territory in which you intend to practice; this is usually a committee of the Supreme Court of that State or Territory or a special body set up to administer admissions to the legal profession. Additional information can be found on the School of Law page.

Students who complete the Honours Pathway may be awarded the degree of Bachelor of Laws with Honours.

To be admitted to the Honours stream, candidates must have completed 72 credit points of law units at UNE with a grade point average (GPA) of 5.5 or better.
