Overview of the course

Embark on a tech-savvy career in the innovative legal sector.

The sweeping uptake of digital technologies in legal professions is revolutionising legal practice, just as it is changing the way we all live and work.

Legal professionals today need to be not only commercially savvy, but have the adaptability to work with emerging technologies across legal landscapes that are continually innovating.

Pathway to becoming a lawyer

Swinburne Online’s Bachelor of Laws is pending approval by the Victorian Legal Admissions Board. Once accredited, the course will fulfil the first requirement on the pathway to becoming a practicing lawyer.

You will develop a nuanced understanding of digital disruption and its legal implications, which will open up your legal career for work in criminal, international, commercial, finance law and more. With a digitally-informed toolkit at your disposal, you will also be able to take advantage of the growing number of technology-centric opportunities in legal fields that govern cybersecurity, media and entertainment, design, branding and advertising.

Like all Swinburne Online courses, practical experience is fundamental. This is why the Bachelor of Laws prioritises work-integrated learning through a series of moot court exercises and competitions, as well as professional placements. By participating you will have the opportunity to network and learn directly from experienced legal professionals, while acquiring a practical legal skill set.

Your placement can be at any workplace where legal work is performed, as long as your work experience during the placement is of a legal nature. You can take your placement overseas or in Australia, as long as it’s approved by the Course Director, so you have the opportunity to try different legal work during your practical experience.

Swinburne Online will prepare you to meet the challenges of rapid technological change and upheaval in the legal sector, and set you up to chart a success career in law.
