A common highlight of Law degrees is the development it gives students in analytical thinking and reasoning (check out our skills below), which applies to a range of careers across almost every industry.
Make no mistake, not only are Bachelor of Laws degrees typically longer than others (4 years) and more competitive, students commonly highlight the intellectual challenges of study. We've seen this in our reviews with skills & qualities of organisation, time management, perseverance and determination being noted by students in order to succeed in studies in this area. This effort balances out with overall satisfaction ratings of courses as well as ratings in job prospects, course work relevancy and teachers all consistently high.
