The Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Science offers you a course focused on commercial law with emphasis on intellectual property law. 

As the only double degree in Victoria with this specialisation, you'll 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.

Work Integrated Learning is a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees. In this double degree, you'll complete law-related professional experience placements at organisations in Australia or overseas. You'll also be introduced to the practical aspects of legal practice through moot court scenarios and advocacy exercises. And in the Grand Challenges in Science (NPS30003), you’ll have the opportunity to apply your learning and work collaboratively in multi-disciplinary teams on an industry-linked project.

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.
