The objectives of the combined degree courses are those of the component degrees. Reference should be made to the Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Laws course entries.

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.

Graduates of the Bachelor of Business and the Bachelor of Laws will be able to:

  1. Acquire, consolidate, critically evaluate, reflect and synthesise advanced knowledge in one of the business disciplines and in the discipline of law.
  2. Demonstrate critical thinking by identifying, defining and solving problems with intellectual independence.
  3. Make evidence based decisions that take account of diverse contexts and constraints impacting on societies and environments.
  4. Communicate information effectively in written, visual and oral forms with a diverse range of stakeholders.
  5. Work effectively, responsibly, respectfully and safely in individual and/or team contexts.
  6. Demonstrate self-management, flexibility, initiative and resilience in readiness for diverse workplace demands.

Career outcomes

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.

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 component 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.
