How to apply
Law is increasingly regarded as an excellent preparation for a wide range of careers and, with arts and sciences, is an important source of liberal education. Careers in politics, business, banking and finance, teaching, public service, industrial relations and international relations are among the many open to law graduates. Unlike the Bachelor of Laws degree, Bachelor of Business Law is not designed to provide a qualification for the professional practise of law.
