The Bachelor of Laws focuses on commercial law with emphasis on intellectual property law.

Students learn how to protect the rights of those who innovate or create.

Students complete law-related professional experience placements at organisations in Australia or overseas. Students are also introduced to the practical aspects of legal practice through moot court scenarios and advocacy exercises.

The degree equips students with the skills to work in commercial and general legal practice and in a range of industries, including media and entertainment, design, branding and advertising.
