      Overview

      Law is an exciting and challenging discipline. It offers insight into the worlds of politics, business and public affairs as well as the role of law itself and leads to a wide range of careers.

      A career in law begins with an undergraduate degree in any discipline. You can study law subjects from the first year of your undergraduate degree and you will then continue with the Melbourne Juris Doctor (JD) graduate course to qualify as a lawyer.

      You will graduate with both an undergraduate and graduate degree, giving you a higher level of qualification than a traditional double degree.
