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 trademarks, 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.

I chose Swinburne because I wanted to be part of a tight-knit community. It was important to me to know that I would have the ability to form close relationships with other students and get direct support from academics – something that I felt would be difficult in a bigger university.
