Bachelor of Civil Law (Law and Society)


Students from Bachelor of Civil Law (Law and Society) learn how the legal process operates and how law and social forces influence one another in our modern world. Students explore the key foundations of law (constitutional law, contract law and criminal law, for instance), and examine critical perspectives on the nature of these subjects, the practice of law, and the wider role of law in society. The course also focuses on clinical legal education and building practical and transferable skills (for example, with a mandatory Moot Court module).

Students from Bachelor of Civil Law (Law and Society) course are analytical problem solvers who want to understand the role law plays in regulating social systems and to engage critically with the possibilities of law reform.
