The USC Law School's suite of law programs equip you with the necessary skills and qualifications to become a practising lawyer in Australia. We also offer real-life practical experience to our first year law students — an opportunity not offered anywhere else. Students interview clients and assist duty lawyers during advisory sessions at Suncoast Community Legal Service, our partner organisation.
Our law programs are designed to cater to a comparatively small number of students so you'll also benefit from smaller class sizes, greater access to academics and more opportunity to know by name all law students in your cohort.
If you are considering an academic and / or a research career or a higher degree in research, you should consider taking the Law Honours pathway. It develops skills in independent research and writing supported by additional study, and leads to an award of a higher level of qualification.
Criminology and Justice
Our Bachelor of Criminology and Justice has been designed with the input of the Queensland Police Service and gives you an authentic view of social problems that relate to law, justice and crime. Your studies will take you through the criminal justice system and its institutions and you’ll explore criminal profiling, youth justice, homicide, examine policy and much more.
We also offer the choice of a professional placement or research project in your final year, where you can apply what you’ve learnt and begin to make a difference.
Expand your career options and study one of three double degrees, new in 2016. Choose from Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Criminology and Justice, Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology) / Bachelor of Criminology and Justice or Bachelor of Social Work / Bachelor of Criminology and Justice.

I do want to make a difference whether it be big or small – to help others and give back.
I personally listen to true crime podcasts and to be here, studying it, and be involved, makes it a reality. If you have a passion for true crime novels, you will enjoy it.
