Prepare for a dynamic career in the legal profession with a flexible and experience-based law degree from UniSA.
You will learn the fundamental principles of the Australian legal system and obtain specialised knowledge through elective courses, allowing you to graduate with the skills to analyse and apply legal principles. Delivering practical learning, small class sizes, and courtroom-like facilities, our degrees provide a learning experience that takes you beyond the theory of law.
You will be prepared for legal practice through practical learning experiences including mooting, negotiation, witness examination, the student-run Legal Advice Clinic and student placements in legal and other professional settings. You will learn how to argue a case by developing your skills in reasoning, analysis, communication and advocacy and gain experience 'at the bar' in a mock court and present before a judge.
Offering double degrees and flexible trimester study options, we allow you to tailor your studies to your interests and needs, including opportunities for overseas study placements, as well as local and national internships and clerkships.
