Why choose this course?

This course allows you to combine your property interest with your law qualification. Whether you choose to work in the legal fraternity or within the property industry, you will graduate with a unique set of skills that will enhance your employment options.

Our Bachelor of Laws (Honours) is a higher-level 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.

As a law student, you will benefit immediately and into the future from:

  • a course that has been designed in consultation with industry to have a strong foundation in contemporary law knowledge, understanding and experience
  • a wide range of law electives and a minor in law, technology and innovation
  • our high quality law library, expert librarians and law moot court facilities.

Through your property economics course, you will develop a detailed understanding and knowledge of:

  • the Australian and global property industries
  • how the property industry relates to the business economy and the built environment, in order to meet current and future industry requirements
  • the use, value, management and marketing of property in order to optimise the benefits from ownership or occupation.

Across both courses, you will benefit from:

  • meaningful connections with high profile industry employers
  • practical and effective hands-on learning experiences during your studies
  • classes with leading and expert teachers
  • international study and placement opportunities
  • the convenience of a city-based campus.

What to expect

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. You will develop legal skills including interviewing, negotiation, drafting and advocacy. You can also elect to complete the new law, technology and innovation minor, which covers topics including how the law is responding to new developments in artificial intelligence, robotics, 3D printing and autonomous vehicles.

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.

The property sector is one of Australia’s largest industries and the second largest employer. Our property economics course is one of the few specialised property courses in Australia and delves into all aspects of property: investment, asset management, development, valuation and research, with a focus on finance and the commercial property market sector. Our course will develop your expertise in optimising the returns and performance of this specialist asset class.

Career outcomes

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.

The property economics degree is accredited by and meets the membership requirements of the Australian Property Institute (API), the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the Valuers Registration Board of Queensland; and the Board of Valuers, Appraisers, Estate Agents and Property Managers (BOVAEP), Malaysia (accreditation pending).
