In conjunction with developing your knowledge of legal frameworks, you'll examine how modern economies operate and the interaction between law and regulation, and the economy. You will develop analytical skills of both legal and policy-based economic issues - practical skills and knowledge that can be then adapted to a range of careers.

In the Economics component of this degree you will study core units in microeconomics (microeconomic issues include the management of the environment and depleting natural resources) and macroeconomics (this relates the growth and stability of the whole economic system) as well as business statistics. You can then choose to complete a major in Applied Econometrics, Economics, Economic Development or Environmental Analysis and Policy.

Social responsibility, ethical decision making, and environmental and business sustainability are incorporated throughout the economics component, and you will develop skills to use, critically analyse, interpret, construct and communicate economic and social data with an emphasis on economic decision making.

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. The Bachelor of Laws component of this degree is accredited by the Legal Profession Admission Board of NSW for admission as a legal practitioner in NSW and mutual recognition legislation extends admission to other Australian jurisdictions.

After completion of academic qualifications 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.
