At Murdoch University you can combine a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree with a Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Business.
Adding a Science degree to your Law qualification could help you develop the kind of observation, analysis and reasoning skills that will give you a competitive advantage in your career. For example, you could combine a Bachelor of Laws with a Bachelor of Science in Forensic Biology and Toxicology. This would allow you to learn the most up-to-date techniques to gather analyse and present scientific evidence, such as DNA profiling and drug metabolism, in a court of law.
The combination of a Law and Science degree means you will have a competitive advantage whilst working in the courtroom as a Prosecutor, Defence Lawyer or Criminal Lawyer or when physically examining evidence in the lab environment whilst working as a Scene –of-Crime Officer or Forensic Investigator
The Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree meets the educational requirements of the Legal Practice Board of Western Australia for admission as a practising lawyer. Once you graduate, you will also need to meet additional training requirements to be admitted to legal practice. This degree is also accredited by the Ministry of Law in Singapore, the Malaysian Bar Council and the Indian Bar Council.
