Semester 1
Pursue further study and enrich your career with law.

Throughout this course, you will develop the values and critical thinking skills necessary to marshal facts, assess and evaluate information for a variety of professional roles.

A degree in law is the first step towards entering the legal profession. After graduating from the University, if you wish to practice in Tasmania you are required to undertake a Legal Practice course over six months.

The Bachelor of Laws course is the basic academic preparation for persons who wish to enter the legal profession and other careers involving legal work. The course also has wider applicability in developing the attributes and skills inherent in a general university education. Students develop the values and intellectual abilities necessary to marshal facts and to critically assess and evaluate information, theories and doctrines thus preparing themselves for a variety of career roles.

A degree in law is the first step towards entering the legal profession. After graduating from the University, a law student wishing to practice in Tasmania is required to undertake a 6 month Legal Practice course.

Career outcomes

A law degree is a prerequisite to admission as a legal practitioner. Today, however, employers from a widening range of disciplines value the skills that law graduates possess. A range of career choices lie open to law graduates as a solicitor, barrister, industry legal officer or ministerial adviser, as well as in legal aid, community legal centres, the Attorney-General's department, law reform commissions, consumer affairs, environment, foreign affairs, police, legal drafting, politics, banking, finance, journalism, publishing and teaching.

Professional Recognition

The Law degree meets the requirements of the accrediting body, the Tasmanian Board of Legal Education. After graduating from the University, a law student wishing to practise in Tasmania is required to undertake a 6 month Legal Practice course. Under the mutual recognition scheme, after gaining admission and obtaining a practising certificate in Tasmania lawyers can practise in another state of Australia without having to obtain a practising certificate in the latter jurisdiction.International students should address such enquiries to the relevant authority in their home country.
