Graduate Law

Bachelor of Laws (Graduate Entry)

This three-year program provides a sound understanding of the Australian legal system within a local and international context. You will gain essential skills and knowledge required for future admission to the legal profession.

This degree is also useful for professionals who are in roles/industries where the knowledge and application of legal skills are crucial to their work. This includes industries such as banking, insurance and consulting, and functions such as procurement, contracts administration, policy development and implementation.

You have the option of studying full-time or part-time across two UOW locations: Liverpool and Wollongong. Evening and weekend classes are available along with other flexible learning options.
