The Bachelor of Laws (Honours) articulates from The Bachelor of Laws. The Bachelor of Laws has been accredited by the Legal Practitioners Admissions Board, Queensland, and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Queensland as an approved academic qualification under the Supreme Court (Legal Practitioner Admission) Rules 2004 (Qld).
USQ law programs have also been approved by the Australian Law Schools Standards Committee under the Standards for Australian Law Schools adopted by the Council of Australian Law Deans. The Bachelor of Laws will partially satisfy the requirements to practise as a lawyer in Queensland or elsewhere in Australia. Intending lawyers must also complete an approved practical legal training course in order to become admitted to practise law. There is an option in the Honours year of gaining a credit for four units of law approved courses by the completion of an approved practical legal training program. Advice on practical legal training programs can be obtained through Ask USQ.
