Law (Dual Degrees) - Law - UNSW Law

Undergraduate programs

All domestic applicants (Australian citizens, permanent residents and New Zealand citizens), who wish to study an undergraduate Law double degree program at UNSW must sit the Law Admission Test. 

Please visit the LAT section of our website for more details and key dates. 

At UNSW undergraduate students study law as part of a Law double degree program. This means you'll study a Bachelor of Laws alongside another non-law degree such as Arts, Commerce or Science.

For example, if you study an Arts/Law degree you'll graduate with a BA/LLB qualification; or Commerce/Law graduates gain a BCom/LLB; or International Studies/Law graduates gain a BIntSt/LLB. 

If you're just leaving high school, you can only enrol in a Law double degree program.
