Bachelor of Legal Transformation

Program overview

In this time of radical change, the industry needs a new kind of professional … and they're not lawyers. 

The legal industry is changing rapidly because of new technologies, new providers, and shifting client expectations. Lawyers and officers of the court operate across multiple jurisdictions – from country to country, from the real world to the virtual world, from traditional media and paper files to social media and cloud storage. 

This brave new world is disrupting how the law is interpreted, applied, and practised at every level. 

Bond's Bachelor of Legal Transformation is designed for people who want to work in the legal world but not as practising legal professionals. It focusses on the operation and development of digital technologies, design thinking and innovation to transform how legal services are delivered. 

The program offers students an immersive, transdisciplinary learning experience, drawing knowledge from multiple faculties and study disciplines to equip graduates with a robust view of legal transformation, a flexible skillset, and a niche area of specialisation. 

The Bachelor of Legal Transformation can be completed in just two years. As a multidimensional degree, there are no limits to where this future-focussed qualification can take you. 

If this has sparked your interest, however, you want the option to become a qualified solicitor then consider Bond’s Bachelor of Laws where you can double major in legal transformation.
