You will need to transfer to the Honours degree. To transfer you will need to have:
- eight law units (BLB or LLW units) or fewer left to complete your Bachelor of Law (LLB) course (usually the last year of your course)
- an average score of at least 70 or above. This must be confirmed by the LLB course coordinator, Upeka Perera.
To be awarded a Bachelor of Laws (Honours), students in any Bachelor of Laws course may apply to transfer into any Bachelor of Laws (Honours) course.
Students with eight or less units to complete will be assessed on the top 12 law units completed. Where a student's average score is 70% or above for the top 12 law units completed, they're eligible to make an application for transfer into an Honours degree. They will be further assessed on an outline of a proposed thesis topic, dependent on the availability of a college-based or college-affiliated supervisor.
Where approved, students must have at least two spaces of law electives available and once transferred must enrol in both LLW5900 Advanced Legal Research Methods and LLW5901 Advanced Legal Research Dissertation. In order to graduate with honours, students must successfully pass both these units.
- Cross-institutional subjects are not counted
- You should keep two law electives free while studying your initial LLB course, so that when you transfer to the honours course, you are able to complete the two required dissertation units which are both electives:
- LLW5900 Advanced Legal Research Methods
- LLW5901 Advanced Legal Research Dissertation.
