Combining a professional qualification in law with a criminology degree, this program offers an innovative, high-quality legal education with a strong global and social justice perspective and a real emphasis on hands-on experiences. The program includes all the compulsory law subjects required by the Victorian Legal Admissions Board for admission to the legal profession in Victoria and a wide range of law electives.

The criminology component is designed for students interested in the significant challenges crime and criminal justice pose for practitioners and policy makers. Combining subjects in criminology with electives drawn from other disciplines to complement the law program, this degree fosters a unique interdisciplinary perspective and will equip students with the skills and knowledge required to meet the changing needs of the employment market, and make a difference in communities through advocacy and policy development.

The qualification awarded on graduation is recognised in the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) as Level 7.

Admission criteria

Advanced Standing - Credit for prior study

Advanced Standing is the recognition of previous study or learning that can be counted towards a qualification. This can reduce the number of subjects required to complete your course. The amount of credit received depends on the level and relevance of your previous tertiary study and the number of subjects completed. The University will designate courses where there is only admission into Year 1 of the course. In these cases, there is limited advanced standing. More information
