Law is the basis of the way in which individuals, businesses, companies and nations interact. It is valuable for individuals as consumers and vital for those in business if they are to prosper. The range of areas of law is very large - from criminal law to the law of international human rights.
The USQ School of Law would like to extend a welcome to you and encourages you in exploring your options for your future career.
USQ's Faculty of Business and Law offers a variety of programs and courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
We offer a fully accredited legal qualification through our Bachelor of Laws and Juris Doctor with electives available from the following specialisations - Commercial Law, General Practice Law, Natural Resource Law and International Law. Combined Law degrees can also be undertaken with Arts, Business or Commerce.
Law is also offered as part of the study in a number of other qualifications such as the Bachelor of Commerce and Master of Business Administration.
USQ's law programs satisfy the academic qualification for admission as a legal practitioner (barrister or solicitor) in Queensland. Note that there are additional practical legal training requirements apart from the academic qualification. The law degrees will also satisfy the academic requirement for admission in the other Australian states and territories, however students should always confirm legal practice admission requirements for the jurisdiction in which they wish to practice as these are usually done on a case by case basis.
Law can provide career opportunities in many diverse areas including corporate law, intellectual property, media law and litigation. The university also provides advice on job searching and career planning for students who are looking for a job in their field.
Further law-specific resources and staff lists about the programs offered by the Faculty of Business and Law are also available.
