What will I learn?
The practical skills you will learn when studying a Bachelor of Laws include hands-on skills such as critical analysis, written and oral communication, research, negotiation and advocacy, all of which are necessary in succeeding in a legal profession. A degree in Mathematics equips graduates with the skills to analyse and forecast economic and financial results, while understanding the factors behind important decision-making various industry and government organisations. This double degree combination will help you gain a competitive edge, teaching you to identify patterns, analyse complex information, develop an ability to interpret data, predict consequential actions, and be acutely aware of legal considerations and the context in which they arise. In the first year of your Law double degree, your Bachelor of Laws subjects must be completed full-time, except where Faculty approval is given on equity grounds. In the following four years of the degree, students enrol in subjects from both degrees.
