For over 40 years, UNSW Law has been setting the pace in legal education in Australia. If you are just leaving high school, you can enrol in a Law dual degree at UNSW. The UNSW Law dual degree program will allow you to study two diverse areas while also providing you with an understanding of the wider social implications of law.
