Selected major: Perspectives on Globalisation
Globalisation and international relations have transformed in the twenty first century, offering the potential for stronger human relationships with distant cultures connecting in an instant, but also the danger of heightened conflicts and tensions.
Delve into the social, cultural and political trajectories that have unfolded in the digital age. With a focus on both diverse Indigenous and civilizational points of view, open your mind to the world’s cultures, beliefs and systems. Develop essential cultural competency skills and think critically about how the creative possibilities generated by globalisation can be fostered while the threats it poses are mitigated.
In this multi-disciplinary, you’ll learn about sociology, politics, history and Indigenous studies.
Our Bachelor of Laws/ Bachelor of Arts gives you a strong foundation in critical thinking and problem-solving skills for a dynamic future-ready legal career.
Be prepared for the legal world of tomorrow – artificial intelligence, big data, cybersecurity and more – with a degree that explores how technology is transforming legal practice. You’ll focus on legal tech, commercial law and intellectual property law, and learn how to protect the rights of those who create and innovate. Plus, gain a solid grounding with core units in Constitutional Law, Contract Law and Criminal Law.
Whether you’re passionate about climate change, social justice or how to protect our rights in an evolving tech rich world – with your arts degree, you’ll fortify your analytical thinking by tackling complex and crucial global problems with majors such as Climate and Social Justice or Ethics and Technology.
Work Integrated Learning is a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees. In this double degree, you'll complete law-related professional experience placements. You'll also be introduced to the practical aspects of legal practice through moot court scenarios and advocacy exercises.

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.
