The Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Science 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 provides an understanding of complex scientific information.
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 within the knowledge economy and information technology businesses, as patent attorneys, and in legal fields specialising in intellectual property, media, and science.

I wanted to study somewhere with smaller class sizes and not get lost in a sea of other students. Swinburne is one of a few universities that offers a law science double degree – and the focus on intellectual property and technology really captured my interest.
