Program overview

This dual degree provides you with the opportunity to examine the formation, process, structure and economic impact of law and the legal institutions, which is ideal if you’re interested in areas where law and economic analysis intersect.

By gaining an in-depth knowledge in both areas, you are well placed for careers in both economic and legal practice. You will examine legal frameworks, processes and systems and complement this with the study of economic issues such as international trade, inflation, government organisation and competitions, strategic behaviour and unemployment, all grounded in economic theory and quantitative methods.

Economics/Law is jointly offered by UNSW Law and UNSW Business School.

Careers

Graduates are likely to be employed in many areas of government and business including finance companies, sharebrokers, banks, regulatory bodies, government departments, consultancy and research firms and international organisations.

Accreditation
