About this course

With the growth in scientific research and the commercialisation of new technologies, graduates with knowledge in both science and law are increasingly sought after. This double degree course provides practical legal skills and an awareness of the complex interaction between science and society.

In an age of increasing technological advancements, the link between science and the law will only become stronger. This means as a graduate with a double degree in science and law you will have the power to choose which career you follow.

With a choice of twenty-five majors in science and a rich repertoire of law electives, the course can be tailored to meet your individual interests!

This course leads to two separate degrees:

  • the Bachelor of Laws (Honours), and
  • the Bachelor of Science.

You will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in your chosen work.

As both degrees are internationally recognised, you will have no problem applying for work abroad. Depending on your area of specialisation, you may work in the space industry, biotechnology, intellectual property, mining or forensic law to name just some career paths.

There is high demand for legal professionals with expertise in science - and scientists who are qualified in law. From the law-makers dealing with legislation relating to climate change, genetically modified crops and stem cell research to the scientists needing to navigate complex legal and political approval processes to further their research.
