Student Business Services (SBS) Admissions:
Why choose this course?
This course allows you to combine your creative interest with your law qualification. Whether you choose to work in the legal fraternity or within the creative industries, you will graduate with a unique set of skills that will enhance your employment options. Your creative industries major will provide you with an up-to-date insight into the creative economy and an appreciation of creative collaboration. You will also complete a creative industries major from one of animation; art and design history; creative and professional writing; dance studies; drama; entertainment industries; fashion; film, television and screen; interactive and visual design; journalism; literary studies; media and communication; or music. You will study creative industries and law subjects in your first four years and for the remainder of this course you will concentrate on law studies.
Graduates may use their combined skills to work in-house as a lawyer for cultural institutions, government or regulatory bodies, or in law firms with specialist interests in the creative industries. Alternatively, you may work in the legal environment as a solicitor, barrister or in-house lawyer. If you choose to pursue a creative career, your legal knowledge will be of benefit in the process of commissioning projects, creative industries administration and contract negotiation.
At the end of your law degree you will have completed the necessary units for admission to legal practice in Australia. If you want to become a practising lawyer you will need to complete further practical legal training (e.g. Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice) and then apply for admission. The Bachelor of Laws is also recognised for solicitor’s admission in East Malaysia, Fiji and Papua New Guinea, and in West Malaysia and India after completion of these countries’ qualifying examinations.
You will study a combination of business and law units in the first four years, with law units only in the final years. You will also have the opportunity to choose elective units relevant to your career interests.
