Mark from Toronto, Canada, talks about why he chose to study law at Bond University.

Which Bond Law program is right for me?

Bond’s law programs are designed to equip you for a career in the legal profession, business, industry or government. The combination of excellent teaching, small classes, international perspective and extensive legal skills program provides an exciting learning experience that both challenges you academically and prepares you practically for a legal career.

The Bachelor of Laws and the Juris Doctor are both professionally recognised degrees. While the LLB is a recognised law degree, the JD is the preferred legal qualification with which to enter the legal profession in Canada. Entry to the JD is restricted to graduate students while the LLB is only available to students who have not yet completed a Bachelor's degree. Canadians who possess a prior degree in any discipline can only enrol in the JD.

The compulsory law units for the two Bond degrees are the same:

  • The LLB comprises 32 subjects in total, including 17 compulsory law units and 4 compulsory non-law units; and
  • The JD comprises 24 subjects in total, all being law units, with 17 of the units being compulsory.

Canadian students wishing to undertake further studies should consider enrolling in the Master of Laws with a specialisation in Canadian Law and Practice. Elective subjects from the Bond JD may be applied as advanced standing and assist students to fast-track their LLM studies.
