The Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Arts offers you a course focused on commercial law with emphasis on intellectual property law. As the only double degree in Victoria with this specialisation, you'll learn about trademarks, patents and designs, copyright, the prohibition of misleading or deceptive conduct and competition law.
The course also provides a general understanding of contemporary social and cultural developments. You can choose from a range of Arts majors, enabling specialisation in a series of study areas depending on their field of interest.
The combination of degrees equips you with the skills to work in commercial and general legal practice, in government, and in arts- and humanities-based organisations.
Work Integrated Learning is a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees. In this double degree, you'll complete law-related professional experience placements at organisations in Australia or overseas. You'll also be introduced to the practical aspects of legal practice through moot court scenarios and advocacy exercises. And in Grand Challenges: Making a Difference (ART30001), you’ll work in teams and develop valuable collaborative skills as you research innovative solutions to contemporary issues facing society.

I am a proud Jaara, Wemba Wemba and Yorta Yorta woman. I chose Swinburne law as I wanted to involve myself in the discourse that surrounds Indigenous people, to empower community and make positive changes. Currently, I am an Associate to Judge Purcell at the County Court. I plan to write a dissertation on Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property.
