The Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Innovation and Design 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, copyright, the prohibition of misleading or deceptive conduct and competition law.
The course also integrates the principles and theories of design in a business and innovation management context. Students learn about the relationship between innovation, design, entrepreneurship and creativity.
Students complete law-related professional experience placements 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 the design industry and as entrepreneurs.
