What to expect

Bachelor of Communication (Entertainment Industries)

This course equips you with the critical thinking skills and professional know-how to successfully navigate the dynamic creative practices, industrial structures and legal mechanisms in such global industries as film, television, music, games and sports, among others.

By graduation, you will learn how to research, implement and critically assess a range of strategic activities, from identifying talent, developing pitches and negotiating contracts to engaging culturally diverse audiences and evaluating the impact of new technologies.

Bachelor of Laws (Honours)

The defining nature of our law degree is the unique balance between theory and practice. During your degree, you'll complete the academic law units required for admission to legal practice, as well as elective units that align with your career interests.

Through your study you'll develop necessary legal skills such as legal research, problem solving, dispute resolution, and oral and written communication.

With your combined knowledge of communications and law you may work as a lawyer specialising in clients in the media and communication arena, intellectual property lawyer, defamation lawyer, entertainment director, producer, publisher or in-house lawyer for an organisation specialising in events, large-scale performances or theme parks.

Our course will also help you understand and promote the ethical standards of the legal profession and to appreciate international and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives.

Our Bachelor of Laws (Honours) is a higher qualification than a bachelor degree, as it has honours-level content integrated throughout the course. The advanced knowledge and skills in this course will benefit your professional career, or future research and study.

Professional recognition

The law degree is approved by the Queensland Legal Practitioners Admissions Board. If you want to become a lawyer at the end of your degree, you will need to complete further practical legal training (PLT) before you can apply for admission to practice. Successful completion of PLT allows you to apply for admission as solicitor, but if you want to be a barrister you will need to also pass the Bar Exams. We offer PLT in the form of the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice.
