Overview

This degree addresses the increasing need for scientific expertise among lawyers.

With the Bachelor of Laws, students explore the common law and the broader Australian legal system before building specialist expertise through electives and majors. These include biomedical law, bioethics, and intellectual property law, or the Legal Futures and Technology major, which provides an intensive exploration of emerging technologies that are shaping the legal sector. With the Bachelor of Science, students study the fundamentals of science before choosing a major in either nanotechnology, medical science, biotechnology or mathematics, or using their electives to build a degree that reflects their personal interests.

This course meets the academic requirements for admission to practise law in NSW. Graduates possess an understanding of the law in the context of research and industrial and commercial enterprise, making them ready for specialist legal careers in areas such as patent, environmental or medical law.

Career options

Career options include positions in the law (in areas where strong scientific backgrounds are valued, such as conservation and resource management), climate change advisory roles, defence technologies, environmental pollution regulation, finance, human health, industrial and occupational health and safety, pharmaceutical and biotechnological research and development, and scientific patents.

Key

LAW = Law course intended learning outcomes (CILOs)
SCI = Science course intended learning outcomes (CILOs)

Admission requirements

Applicants must have completed an Australian Year 12 qualification, Australian Qualifications Framework Diploma, or equivalent Australian or overseas qualification at the required level.

The English proficiency requirement for international students or local applicants with international qualifications is: Academic IELTS: 6.5 overall with a writing score of 6.0; or TOEFL: paper based: 550-583 overall with TWE of 4.5, internet based: 79-93 overall with a writing score of 21; or AE5: Pass; or PTE: 58-64; or CAE: 176-184.

Eligibility for admission does not guarantee offer of a place.

International students

Visa requirement: To obtain a student visa to study in Australia, international students must enrol full time and on campus. Australian student visa regulations also require international students studying on student visas to complete the course within the standard full-time duration. Students can extend their courses only in exceptional circumstances.

Assumed knowledge

English proficiency; Mathematics; and Science.

Course duration and attendance

The course duration is five years of full-time study. For students who undertake the Bachelor of Science (Honours) the course duration is six years of full-time study.

The law component requires attendance at 10–15 hours of lectures a week and timetable constraints may require attendance at daytime and evening classes. The science component requires attendance of approximately 10 hours a week at the university.

Course structure

The course comprises a total of 240 credit points and allows students to graduate with the separate degrees of Bachelor of Science (BSc) and Bachelor of Laws (LLB). The study components for course completion are as follows.

The law component of 144 credit points is made up of:

  • 108 credit points of compulsory core law subjects
  • 30 credit points of law options, including either:
    • 30 credit points of law options, or
    • 30 credit points of legal futures and technology options
  • a 6-credit-point legal theory option.

The science component comprises 96 credit points of core science subjects taken from one of 10 specified majors representing different science disciplines.

Students graduate from the BSc independently from the LLB. However, to be eligible for graduation from the BSc students must complete one of the 96-credit-point UTS: Science majors plus at least 96 credit points of Bachelor of Law subjects.

Graduation from the science component of the combined degree is not possible prior to completion of all components of the combined degree. Students wishing to graduate with a Bachelor of Science prior to completion of the law component of the combined degree must apply for transfer to the Bachelor of Science (C10242) single degree program where they must complete all requirements for the stand-alone single degree version.

Similarly, a student can graduate from the law component of the combined degree prior to completion of the science component, but if they wish to continue with the science component, they must apply for transfer to the Bachelor of Science (C10242) single degree program where they need to complete all requirements for the stand-alone single degree version.

For a current listing of subjects in each course refer to the study package directory.

Industrial training/professional practice

To practise as a lawyer in NSW, students need to successfully complete an accredited legal academic qualification (e.g. Bachelor of Laws) and an accredited course of practical legal training (PLT), which UTS offers through its PLT program.

Students enrolled in this course may complete their practical legal training by undertaking a postgraduate course in PLT, such as the Graduate Certificate in Professional Legal Practice (C11232).
