Australian law schools and its students are undertaking exciting study opportunities, and so this month, OzTREKK has featured Australian Law Schools are our program of the month! Throughout Australia, more than 30 universities offer professional law degrees, which are open to international students. These include undergraduate and graduate-entry Bachelor of Laws (LLB) programs as well as postgraduate Juris Doctor degrees. As a Canadian seeking to become qualified to practice law, you have a range of study options abroad. As Commonwealth nations, the Australian and Canadian systems are based on English common law, and Australian Law Schools provide a solid foundation for students planning to practise law in Canada (with the exception of Quebec). OzTREKK’s aim is to assist you in choosing the best Australian Law Schools for you.
Both the Juris Doctor and the Graduate-entry Bachelor of Laws are graduate entry law degrees. They are designed to equip students for a career in the legal profession.
