Courses Overview

What will I learn?
This is a highly competitive course and applicants are strongly encouraged to also apply for the Associate Degree of Legal Studies ( ) or the Diploma of Laws ( ) as an alternative pathway should they not meet the cutoff. Students who complete the Associate Degree of Legal Studies or the Diploma of Laws at Charles Darwin University will be eligible to apply for full credit upon admission to the Bachelor of Laws.
The course provides legal education for the practice of law. In that context, the course provides knowledge of the legal system and legal principles, and cultivates a capacity for legal research, analysis and communication. The course also deals with theoretical perspectives on the law and encourages an appreciation of legal issues of special significance to the Northern Territory, including Aboriginal legal issues.
The Bachelor of Laws program draws upon the Law School's active and growing relationships with the legal profession, Aboriginal customary law leaders, and overseas law schools. 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.
Course Structure

Most of the core units are those prescribed by the legal profession as essential for meeting the academic requirements for admission to legal practice in Australia. The specialist electives are designed to allow students to gain understanding of a range of other aspects of the law, while the general electives allow students to explore a wide range of other disciplines offered by Charles Darwin University. The degree can also be completed with honors.
A candidate must successfully complete units totalling 320 credit points (cp). All units are valued at 10 credit points unless indicated.
Professional Recognition

To be admitted to legal practice in Australia, law graduates must also complete the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice (GDLP).
