How to apply
Legal qualifications are an excellent foundation for high level careers in a diverse range of related fields including finance, accounting, business, teaching, public service, management consulting, human resources, politics, investment banking, advocacy, the police force and the criminal justice system.
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 Jurisprudence graduates. Unlike the Bachelor of Laws degree, a Bachelor of Jurisprudence is not designed to provide a qualification for the professional practise of law.
According to the annual Employer Satisfaction Survey published by the Australian Government Department of Education, employer satisfaction with Bond graduates has been rated highest in Australia for three years in a row.
We believe this is due to Bond’s uniquely personalised approach to teaching, combined with the application of case-based learning that encourages the development of increased analytical reasoning, critical thinking, and a range of broader employability skills.
Our Bachelor of Jurisprudence program has a clear focus on practical skills, and that combined with Bond’s employability initiatives such as the Career Development Centre, means that you will enter the workforce with the skills, experience and confidence to stand out.
