Overview

The objectives of the Science and Laws from University of Tasmania are those of the component degrees. Reference should be made to the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Laws course entries.

The Bachelor of Laws course is the basic academic preparation for persons who wish to enter the legal profession and other careers involving legal work. 

The course also has wider applicability in developing the attributes and skills inherent in a general university education. 

Students develop the values and intellectual abilities necessary to marshal facts and to critically assess and evaluate information, theories and doctrines thus preparing themselves for a variety of career roles.

Career

Graduates of combined degrees could expect to find open to them all the career paths that are open to graduates of the component degree courses.

A law degree is a prerequisite to admission as a legal practitioner. Today, however, employers from a widening range of disciplines value the skills that law graduates possess. 

A range of career choices lie open to law graduates as a solicitor, barrister, industry legal officer or ministerial adviser, as well as in legal aid, community legal centres, the Attorney-General's department, law reform commissions, consumer affairs, environment, foreign affairs, police, legal drafting, politics, banking, finance, journalism, publishing and teaching.
