    Bachelor of Arts - Bachelor of Laws

    The flexibility of a Bachelor of Arts - Bachelor of Laws degree at JCU ensures that you can complete two degrees while expanding your knowledge on topics that are of interest to you. Studying two degrees will give you a clearer idea on what you are passionate about and what you want to do at the end of your studies.

    Michael Pannach

    Bachelor of Arts - Bachelor of Laws

    The best thing about this course for me was variety. I could combine Law subjects that were more technical with Arts subjects that interested me personally. In Arts, I studied politics and sociology, which I found particularly interesting and the political subjects dovetailed well with law.

    The benefit of studying at JCU is that there are smaller classes compared to other universities. If students need help, it is very easy to get access to their teaching staff. And for students who are living further away, with online study they can still come to JCU and study many of our courses.
