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.

Innovation and Transdisciplinary program

Transdisciplinarity and Innovation at UTS

All UTS students have the opportunity to develop distinctive capabilities around transdisciplinary thinking and innovation through the TD School. Transdisciplinary education at UTS brings together great minds from different disciplines to explore ideas that improve the way we live and work in the world. These offerings are unique to UTS and directly translate to many existing and emerging roles and careers.

Diploma in Innovation

The Diploma in Innovation (C20060) teaches innovation, supports personal transformation and provides the hard skills needed to support the inventors and inventions of the future. Students come out of the Diploma in Innovation, with the hard skills to create and support sectoral and societal transformation. Graduates are able to fluently integrate ideas, across professional disciplines and are inventors of the future.

All UTS undergraduate students (with the exception of students concurrently enrolled in the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation) can apply for the Diploma in Innovation upon admission in their chosen undergraduate degree. It is a complete degree program that runs in parallel to any undergraduate degree. The course is offered on a three-year, part-time basis, with subjects running in 3-week long intensive blocks in July, December and February sessions. More information including a link to apply is available at https://dipinn.uts.edu.au.

Transdisciplinary electives program

Transdisciplinary electives broaden students' horizons and supercharge their problem-solving skills, helping them to learn outside, beyond and across their degrees. Students enrolled in an undergraduate course that includes electives can choose to take a transdisciplinary subject (with the exception of students concurrently enrolled in the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation). More information about the TD Electives program is available here.

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.

Inherent (essential) requirements

Inherent (essential) requirements are academic and non-academic requirements that are essential to the successful completion of a course.

Prospective and current students should carefully read the Inherent (Essential) Requirements Statement below and consider whether they might experience challenges in successfully completing this course. This Statement should be read in conjunction with the UTS Student Rules.

Prospective or current student concerned about their ability to meet these requirements should discuss their concerns with the Academic Liaison Officer in their faculty or school and/or UTS Accessibility Service on 9514 1177 or at accessibility@uts.edu.au.

UTS will make reasonable adjustments to teaching and learning, assessment, professional experiences, course related work experience and other course activities to facilitate maximum participation by students with disabilities, carer responsibilities, and religious or cultural obligations in their courses.

For course specific information see the Faculty of Law Inherent (Essential) Requirements Statement.

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).

Honours

Students can graduate with a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) if they complete subjects 76090 Research Methodology and 76040 Research Thesis within the course. The degree may be awarded with first or second class honours, which does not require an additional honours year. The rules concerning the Bachelor of Laws (Honours) can be found in undergraduate course information.

Students who meet these criteria for honours are eligible for transfer into the appropriate undergraduate honours exit course on completion of all coursework and occurs just prior to graduation.

Students who undertake the Legal Futures and Technology major and who meet the criteria for honours can choose to undertake honours as part of their degree.

The Bachelor of Science (Honours) is available as an additional year to meritorious students across the available disciplines. It is designed to introduce students to research and more advanced coursework. It allows eligible students to continue with postgraduate studies if desired and enhances their employment prospects.
