We know people take different paths to get into uni and even if they haven’t studied recently, can still be ready to succeed. If this sounds like you, our Pre-Law admissions pathway can provide entry into our Bachelor of Laws if you don’t qualify for standard entry.
Designed to assess your current ability, rather than fill a gap in your knowledge, Pre-Law allows you to demonstrate that you’ve got what it takes to be a Murdoch Law student.
Pre-Law is delivered as an online evening course and runs for 6 weeks. It equates to about the same contact hours, workload and rigour of a law unit. Throughout the course, you must complete:
- 6 online lectures covering substantive law, particularly Law of Contract
- 5 online tutorials
- 3 online lectures covering an introduction of the Australian legal system
- 2 assessable projects
- an online library tutorial session and library assessment piece
- a final exam.
If you achieve 60% or above, you could qualify for admission into our Bachelor of Laws degree.
The course fee is $750, including GST. Payment is due before the course starts.
You can withdraw from the course up to 5 working days before the course starts by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be refunded the course fee, minus an administrative fee of $50. After the course has started, refunds will not be provided.
To be eligible to apply, you must:
- be a domestic student.
- have been away from study for at least 12 months.
- currently not be Murdoch student.
Places are limited to 35 students and approval for admission is at the discretion of the Course Coordinator.
