Overview

The Law degree aims to develop graduates who have excellent analytical skills, a capacity for scholarly research, effective oral and written communication skills, and a commitment to personal and professional development, ethical practice and social responsibility.

The Law degree meets the requirements for the award of the professional LLB degree, while the fourth-year course in Psychology (typically taken in the fifth year of the combined degree) meets the requirements for provisional registration as a psychologist nationally and associate membership in the Australian Psychological Society.

All domestic applicants* who wish to study an undergraduate Law double degree at UNSW need to sit the Law Admission Test (LAT). This includes:

  • Those enrolled in their final year of secondary schooling (Year 12 HSC or equivalent)
  • Those who have already completed their secondary schooling (e.g. those on a gap year)
  • Those who are currently studying at another university and wish to apply to transfer to Law
