The Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical) (Honours) 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 provides students with the technical expertise needed to design technology involving physical motion. Students learn the core concepts of mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and energy.

Students complete both law- and engineering-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 engineering firms, in government, as patent attorneys, and in legal fields specialising in engineering.
