    Akari Fellows

    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.

    William Evans

    Bachelor of Science-Bachelor of Laws graduate

    The best part about the degree was the variety. The disciplines are taught very differently – science was very hands-on, whereas law was more research-based. Even if you don’t end up working a dual field, the skills are very transferable. I’m so glad I studied both.

    Lecturer, Bachelor of Science - Bachelor of Laws

    With world-leading marine biologists; award-winning scientists; & lawyers respected by Australia’s legal profession, JCU BSciLLB is a great choice for students seeking a challenge. Medical negligence expertise; the law on robots & work; forensic criminology & environmental law are just some of the doors that may open.
