About the Program
The Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree, offered by the University of Newcastle Law School, is undertaken as a three-year, full-time graduate program, for those who have already completed an undergraduate degree. The Newcastle Law School‘s integrated Professional Program was the first in Australia where students could take the three components of professional legal training – theoretical learning, skills training and experiential learning – at the same time.
The Newcastle Law School‘s Legal Clinic is both a community legal service and a teaching facility for law students. The Centre provides an intensive clinical placement site for students. By working with the Centre’s lawyers and dealing with real clients with actual legal problems, students gain skills and experience in the practice of law.
