Bachelor of Biomedical Science/ Bachelor of Laws

Where will your degree take you?

The combined Bachelor of Biomedical Science/Bachelor of Laws degree provides you with the professional outcomes and opportunities of both individual degrees. 

Completing this combined program will provide opportunities for a range of careers in private, government and not for profit sectors. 

Graduates may seek to practise law whilst utilising a foundational understanding of the health and medical sciences or employ their understanding of science to work in biomedical industries and law with a background in compliance, regulation, and intellectual property. 

Some of the possible career opportunities available to graduates are outlined below.


Legal professional

Upon being admitted to the legal profession, you can work as a solicitor in a law firm, a government organisation, in-house counsel, or a barrister (following the completion of the bar practice course).


Upon being admitted to the legal profession and completing the bar practice course, you can work as a barrister. A barrister is an independent advocate and advisor and is often highly skilled in a particular area of law.


This dual program could lead you to a unique role as a biotechnologist, as it uniquely encompasses both fields of study. This could lead you to manage regulation, compliance, and clinical trials in the commercialisation of innovative infrastructure.
