Bachelor of Laws (Graduate Entry) - WLAWG1 - 2018

Course overview

Our law courses encourage an appreciation of legal issues of special significance to the Northern Territory, including Aboriginal legal issues and South East Asian law.

The Bachelor of Laws (Graduate Entry) program enables those who hold a degree level qualification (other than law) to complete a law degree in three years instead of four.

You’ll discuss in detail the legal system and legal principles, and improve your knowledge about legal research, analysis and communication.

The program draws upon the Law School's active and growing relationships with the legal profession, Aboriginal customary law leaders and overseas law schools.

The international links facilitate the Law School emphasis on providing students with exposure to transnational law including comparative law and opportunities are provided for students to study overseas with partner universities with credit being given towards their law degree.

Why study with us

  • Opportunities study overseas at a partner university as part of your law studies.
  • You can study your law degree on-campus, or online.
  • Full-time and part-time study options available.
  • Opportunity to participate in a real-world courtroom experience in our MOOT court.


While the study of law leads to a career as a solicitor or barrister, it also offers you a multitude of career paths, including politics, the public service, or industrial relations.

It can also lead to career opportunities in the public or private sector where an in-depth understanding of the law would be an advantage.
