The Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Arts offers students a course focused on commercial law with emphasis on intellectual property law. As the only double degree in Victoria with this specialisation, students 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. Students choose from a range of Arts majors, enabling specialisation in a series of study areas depending on their field of interest.
Students complete law-related professional experience placements at organisations in Australia or overseas and are introduced to the practical aspects of legal practice through moot court scenarios and advocacy exercises.
The combination of degrees equips students with the skills to work in commercial and general legal practice, in government, and in arts- and humanities-based organisations.
Selected major: History
Research, engage and challenge traditional ideas and practices, while developing critical skills in understanding how history is both made and written. Learn about the historical antecedents of contemporary problems, including themes of war and peace, colonialism, gender, media, and political and radical history. Discover Big History and explore human existence in an interdisciplinary study of life from the Big Bang to the present.
