Programme Description

Bachelor of Laws (BLAWS)

Locations:

  • Casuarina Campus
  • External Studies

The primary aim of this course is to provide legal education for the practice of law. In that context, the course aims to provide knowledge of the legal system and legal principles and to cultivate a capacity for legal research, analysis, and communication. The course also deals with theoretical perspectives on the law and encourages an appreciation of legal issues of special significance to the Northern Territory, including Aboriginal legal issues.

Graduates of law are not restricted to a career as a solicitor, barrister, prosecutor or judge if that is not their ambition. A law degree opens up career options in the in-house counsel of private and public institutions, teaching, industrial relations, military, police services, politics, human rights, customs, immigration or any public or private sector employment where an in-depth understanding of the law would be an advantage.

Admission Requirements

More than 120 years ago, Banjo Paterson described the Northern Territory as a “vast wild land, full of huge possibilities”.And he was right.So how did a relatively small population, spread sparsely across an area, one–fifth the land mass of Australia, with little educational resources to speak of, turn those possibilities into a reality?By creating a study environment where the freedom exists for people to evolve their lives.Today this environment is captured at Charles Darwin University (CDU).
