Studying law is about understanding our society and the power structures within it. Why do we have the laws we do? How have they evolved? How should we interpret them? Whether you want to uphold, use or change the system—law can take you just about anywhere. The Bachelor of Laws from University of Adelaide can be completed as a single degree, double degree program. 


What will you do?

By taking the Laws from University of Adelaide, you will:
  • explore legal concepts, processes and methods within common law principles and legal methodology
  • build ethical reasoning, policy-based analysis and oratory skills
  • gain rigorous knowledge of the areas of law necessary to undertake legal practice
  • go deeper by choosing from our broad list of electives
  • learn from legal professionals, former judges and international academics
  • undertake internships in areas such as Public Law, Native Title Law and Human Rights Law
  • form connections through the University’s Lex Salus, Next Steps and Law Students' Society events.

Where could it take you?

Law can take you all over the world. You might advocate for asylum seekers or be a voice for the environment. With a little additional training (see Professional accreditation under Careers below) you could guide innovating businesses as an in-house counsel or lead legal reform drafting new bills in government. Perhaps you’ll go on to prosecute criminals, or preside in a Supreme Court.

Career Readiness

Roles for law graduates are expanding significantly. Those who become lawyers can become involved in court work, or enter practice as a solicitor. But many graduates also pursue careers in industry, government, commerce, community organisations or academic institutions.

This huge range of options, and the opportunities and influence they afford, gives a career in law a distinctive appeal and makes its study one of the most popular choices among today’s students.
