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.

Career outcomes

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, with further training, 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.

Professional recognition

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. We offer PLT in the form of the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice.

The Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice, provides the knowledge, skills, understanding and values required to become a competent entry-level legal practitioner. The course is available in full-time, internal mode and part-time, online mode. The course complies with the Law Admissions Consultative Council’s Competency Standards for entry-level lawyers and is approved by the Queensland Legal Practitioners Admissions Board.

The Bachelor of Laws is also recognised for solicitor’s admission in East Malaysia, Fiji and Papua New Guinea, and in India and West Malaysia after completion of these countries’ qualifying examinations.
