The Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Business 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 trade marks, patents and designs, copyright, the prohibition of misleading or deceptive conduct and competition law.
The course also teaches students to be entrepreneurial thinkers and provides them with the skills and knowledge essential to business management and operations.
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 combination of degrees equips students with the skills to work in commercial and general legal practice, within management, and as entrepreneurs.

Visiting Indonesia and helping shape the university’s strategy for engaging in the region was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Jack. It gave the Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Business student valuable practical experience and challenged him to think outside the box.
Swinburne started my career. The compulsory internships got me out in the world and helped me gain experience and meet people in my future profession. In the end, it was because of these internships that I got a job.
