Overview

The Bachelor of Laws course at The University of Notre Dame Australia combines a comprehensive coverage of legal and ethical principles, as well as the skills to apply these principles in legal practice.

Although it can be challenging, the legal profession is also an immensely rewarding one. At The University of Notre Dame Australia, we have worked with leading judges, senior barristers and solicitors to design a quality degree that is both rigorous, ethical, practical and relevant to the current Australian legal landscape.

The Bachelor of Laws program gives students a solid grounding in legal theory and practice, and the opportunity to hone their negotiation, advocacy and mooting skills. 

Through our Legal Clinic, mentoring program, courtroom visits, mooting and internship programs, our law students are provided with multiple opportunities to experience the law in practice. Students are also encouraged to learn outside of the classroom, by attending seminars and professional development events such as our Eminent Speakers Series. This prestigious forum connects students and graduates with leading experts in the discussion of contemporary legal and professional matters.
