At Murdoch University you can combine a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree with a Bachelor of Communication.
Adding a Communication degree to your law qualification will help you hone your communication and problem-solving skills to give you a competitive edge in your career. You can choose to specialise in Journalism, Strategic Communication or Global, Media and Communication.
The combination of a Law and Communication degree means you will gain valuable, additional skills to use in your future career. You will learn and perfect presentation skills, media liaison, broadcasting, writing, news media, public affairs, advocacy and more. These skills will complement your Law degree if you want to practice in law or prepare you as a legal correspondent, corporate communicator, an ambassador, politician or public relations officer.
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.
