Bachelor of Laws

This four-year accredited graduate degree gives you the chance to build knowledge of the law from a global and social justice perspective. Explore the law from an international perspective with a focus on current justice issues in this course. Through your subjects, you'll gain practical experience in areas like advocacy, mediation and negotiation, have opportunities to work with judges and magistrates, and undertake placements in real legal workplaces. The La Trobe Law School moot court gives you the chance to apply skills like client interviewing, witness examination and negotiation. Our mooting team participates in international competitions, so you can demonstrate your knowledge while building connections with lawyers, judges and academics from around the world. You'll also have an opportunity to attend our winter school in Shanghai, held in partnership with Shanghai University Law School. There, you'll be introduced to the basic concepts and structure of Chinese law. You can apply to study this course at Melbourne Campus through our Hallmark Scholars Program. Note for Bendigo students: Only the first two years of this course are offered in Bendigo. While it is possible to arrange long-distance learning, we recommend transferring to the Melbourne Campus to complete your degree with a wider selection of subjects. Law electives are also available in intensive delivery at Melbourne in summer and winter schools.
