Bachelor of Jurisprudence
The Bachelor of Jurisprudence provides an opportunity to combine legal subjects of particular interest with study in related disciplines such as business, IT, international relations, criminology, languages and communication.
The degree structures permit various combinations of law and non-law subjects. This flexibility enables students to design their programs to meet a variety of career interests.
Law is increasingly regarded as an excellent preparation for a wide range of careers and, with arts and sciences, is an important source of liberal education. Careers in politics, business, banking and finance, teaching, public service, industrial relations and international relations are among the many open to law graduates.
Unlike the Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree, the Bachelor of Jurisprudence and Bachelor of Business Law degrees are not designed to provide a qualification for the professional practise of law.
Most students undertake four subjects per semester* (equivalent to 40 credit points). You may, however, enrol in fewer subjects and extend your degree over a longer period.
Bond's Teaching methodology involves a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, examinations, projects, presentations, assignments, computer labs and industry projects.
* Australian students enrolled in three or more subjects may be eligible to claim Austudy benefits. International students are required to study a minimum of 30 credit hours (three subjects equivalent) per semester to fulfil Australian study visa requirements.
Both of these degrees are usually taken in combination with other Bond degrees. Combined degrees are encouraged by the Faculty of Law and take between 2 years 8 months and 4 years full-time. Popular combinations include:
Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Jurisprudence
Bachelor of Commerce / Bachelor of Business Law
Bachelor of Communication / Bachelor of Business Law
