This is a new course structure being introduced for students commencing their Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws degree in 2013. Students who enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws degree before 2013 should refer to course 63C.
This on-campus 5-year full-time course is offered by the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Law and is available at Hobart. The first year only is also offered at the Launceston and Cradle Coast campus. This course may be studied part-time.
Admission & Prerequisites
Students must pass the first year of their BA degree, including the units LAW121 Introduction to Law and LAW122 Legal Systems, available at Hobart, Launceston and the Cradle Coast Campus, or the academic equivalent.
There is a quota on places in the Bachelor of Arts-Bachelor of Laws and the assessment of applications will be based on academic merit, taking into consideration previous university studies.
The three methods of entry are:
Direct Entry (for Year 12 leavers only) To be qualified for University entry with a TER score of 90 or above (limited places available in this entry category); or
Alternative Entry A first year in another faculty, which includes the units LAW121 Introduction to Law and LAW122 Legal Systems (or the academic equivalent); or
Graduate Entry An Australian bachelor degree or equivalent.
The objectives of the combined degree courses are those of the component degrees. Reference should be made to the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws course entries.
Graduates of combined degrees could expect to find open to them all the career paths that are open to graduates of the component degree courses.
The components, and the assessment, of the Law Skills unit have been fully integrated into the compulsory units. Each compulsory unit description outlines the skills covered by that unit.
Moots-- Students are required to enrol, attend and participate in one moot. Satisfactory performance in the moot is a prerequisite to obtaining the degree.
