The arts course provides graduates with the ability to understand and study human society.

The law course provides legal education for the practice of law.

The international links facilitate the Law School emphasis on providing students with exposure to transnational law, including comparative law, and opportunities are provided for students to study overseas at partner universities, with credit being given towards the CDU law degree.
