The Griffith Law School offers a professional legal curriculum that focuses on the core areas of legal practice together with legal skills that lawyers must have. It also provides you with opportunities to choose law electives that are aligned with your own particular interests. You can also take advantage of study abroad opportunities and gain credit towards your Griffith degree for approved courses taken at international universities. Griffith Law School staff are committed to a set of values which guide their teaching and research, as well as their relationships with students. These values are summarised as Scholarship, Character, Responsibility and Respect. With the world now a global community, international trade has an even more important role than it has had in the past as countries compete with each other for export income. Legal advice in companies trading internationally is pivotal to their ability to be successful. The combined nature of the program ensures that you will develop a sound understanding of both disciplines and the complex relationship between legal and commercial business practices specific to the major in which you choose to specialise.
