Combining Law with Science allows you to gain a competitive edge by being able to recognise how law functions in social and scientific contexts. This allows students to tackle projects such as environmental planning, or look at the legal implications of introducing new technology. You can choose to specialise in one specific area of science or choose to work in corporate advisory roles around social responsibility. This double degree will help you develop logical and independent thinking, creative problem-solving, organisational abilities, numeracy and statistical literacy.
