Bachelor of Laws/ Bachelor of Criminal Justice and Criminology

BB-LAWCRJ Double degree Hawthorn Send me a link to this course

The Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Criminal Justice and Criminology is the only double degree of its kind in Victoria. Offering the unique combination of an accredited law degree with a specialised education in the causes of crime (Criminology) and the fallout of crime (Criminal Justice), this course arms students with the advanced skills to solve complex legal problems in an increasingly complex society.

Explore all aspects of law, including commercial and intellectual property law, and learn how to communicate with both legal and non-legal audiences. Delve into the differences and similarities between local and global criminality, and discover traditional approaches to crime along with emerging trends.

On completion, you’ll be able to evaluate the main causes of crime, assess the consequences of crime on victims and the community, critically evaluate situations and their legal ramifications, and demonstrate the skills and knowledge necessary to practice law.

This degree is ideal for those who want to specialise in criminal prosecution, criminal defence or government policy development.
