Bond University’s law program equips students for a career in the legal profession, business, industry or government, both within Australia and overseas. Its combination of excellent teaching, small classes and extensive legal skills program provides an exciting learning experience that both challenges students academically and prepares them practically for a legal career.
Bond University’s Legal Skills Centre is a landmark industry training facility, incorporating the technologies, equipment and teaching capabilities required to meet the needs of the legal profession in the 21st century. Built at a cost of $10.2 million, the Centre is the first of its kind to integrate the full complement of legal-based training facilities, with purpose-built suites designed for mediation, dispute resolution, PLT training as well as video conferencing and more. The centrepiece is undoubtedly the full-scale electronic moot court, presenting an ultra-contemporary courtroom setting and equipped with evidence management systems, video conferencing facilities and video streaming that replicates the very latest technology used in the High Court of Australia.
Work Experience & Internships
A clinical legal subject is available as an elective. Many students are encouraged and elect to complete clerkships or internships with law firms during their holidays. Students have recently been given the opportunity to work in Malaysia to undertake two weeks work experience in two law firms, Detta Samen & Co Law Firm – Kuching and Chur Associates – Kuala Lumpur. Current client base includes individuals, trade associations and corporate entities in manufacturing, trading, service, retail, exhibition organising, property development, construction, environmental protection, shipping, intellectual property, information communication technology, e-commerce, health care, entertainment and media. Internships and work experience do not form part of degree requirements.
The Bachelor of Laws degree is your first step towards being able to practise law in Australia. With further study, you will have the opportunity to take leading positions in the public and private sectors, such as solicitor in private practice, barrister, government lawyer, in-house counsel and academia. The degree can also be used to gain admission internationally; however, you are advised to confirm admission requirements in the particular jurisdiction in which you wish to practise.
Popular Combined Degrees
When you finish your Bachelors degree, you will normally apply for your postgraduate professional qualification, the Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice (PLT).
