Bachelor of Laws (Draft Page - Not An Accredited Course)

Course Description

Sheridan's Bachelor of Laws (LLB) is a four-year undergraduate prgram for students pursuing a career in the legal profession, or seeking a pathway towards future studies in law.

The Sheridan LLB degree is characterised by intellectual and ethical rigour. We have a strong commitment and concern for academic excellence, community service, and the highest standards of ethics and professional responsibility. Through the integration of practical learning, jurisprudential thought and ethical responsibility, our students learn how to be effective advocates for justice, fundamental rights and the rule of law.

Sheridan's LLB students are mentored in small classes by a dedicated teaching staff. Our methodology of legal training and practical experience prepares students to be well-placed and suited for future roles in the modern and emerging world. They are equipped to become leaders in law with a superior education in conformity to a distinctively jurisprudential approach, which makes our LLB program unique among the other law schools.
