    Bachelor of Science - Bachelor of Laws

    I plan to specialise in marine science and what better place to study that than JCU, which is a leader in marine science. Also, the law degree has great connections with the legal profession and I'm very interested to gain valuable experience in a law firm. The experience could take me anywhere in the world.
