The Bachelor of Laws from CQUniversity has been specifically designed to ensure graduates have legal knowledge and skills in ethics and professional responsibility, critical thinking, research, communication, collaboration and self-management.

FLEXIBLE STUDY WITH A LEADER IN ONLINE EDUCATION

Our Law course and units are specifically designed to offer maximum flexibility so you can manage work, family and other commitments while you study. Study from anywhere in Australia, when and how it suits you, as CQUniversity is one of the few universities offering law online. Benefit from online learning support and smaller class sizes, offering a high quality and much more personalised student experience.

If you prefer face-to-face classes, you can interact through desktop video conferencing. In addition, the up-to-the-minute curriculum has been designed to be delivered through Moodle or iTunesU. We aim to deliver our learning materials in advance, giving you a longer time to cover the course materials and manage study at your own pace.

STRONG CONNECTIONS TO INDUSTRY

Learn directly from practising lawyers in different fields of practice and take advantage of the knowledge and insight that only real practitioners can provide. Our strong links to the legal profession and clinical experiences through community legal centres and student arranged work placements prepare you for the world of legal practice.

Through experiential learning you will develop not only your knowledge in law, but also your practical skills so that you are work-ready when you graduate. As a student, you will have the opportunity to focus on practical skills development which includes mooting (mock trials), legal drafting of documents, developing legal apps, pro bono community service opportunities and where possible work placements (organised by students).
