Overview

The University of New England offers a flexible approach to the study of law. UNE boasts one of Australia's largest law schools outside a capital city, as well as being an early adopter of innovative technology in the delivery of its law programs.

Studying law in conjunction with another discipline gives you the potential to take an interdisciplinary approach in both your studies and in your future employment.

Computer Science component: On completion of 144 credit points including all requirements for the BCompSc component of the double degree program, students with a meritorious academic record may be permitted to enrol for the Bachelor of Computer Science with Honours (BCompSc(Hons)). 

The Honours year in Computer Science introduces students to subjects of current research and a program of study is designed based on the student's interests. Students are required to submit a thesis.

Law component: There are a range of employment options from which to choose. Graduates who wish to be admitted to practice as a solicitor, barrister or legal practitioner anywhere in Australia will also have to undertake a course of professional legal training (PLT). 

This can consist of approximately half a year's full-time training, undertaken internally or externally, or of equivalent part-time training. 

In some jurisdictions, it may be possible to do articles of clerkship instead. Because the system adopted varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, enquiries should be made to the admission authority in the state or territory in which you intend to practice; this is usually a committee of the Supreme Court of that State or Territory or a special body set up to administer admissions to the legal profession. 

Career Opportunities

The Bachelor of Computer Science- Law offered at  University of New England degree is accredited by the Legal Profession Admission Board of NSW. 

Upon completion of the LLB, graduates may complete a period of practical legal training and be qualified to apply for admission as an Australian Lawyer. 

After admission you are then eligible to apply for a practising certificate as a solicitor from the Law Society of NSW or undertake further studies to obtain a practising certificate as a barrister from the Bar Association of NSW.

At the completion of the five years you will have a range of employment options from which to choose.

Accreditation

The Bachelor of Computer Science (BCompSc) has been granted Professional Level accreditation by the Australian Computer Society.
