Admission Requirements for School Leavers

  • ATAR of 90, indicative only, or an IB of 31+, indicative only.
  • No HSC subject is an essential pre-requisite for the Law degree. As the study of law requires excellent English comprehension and language, strong results in subjects which involve a significant amount of reading and writing (for example, English, History, Legal Studies or Studies of Religion) are the best indicators of likely success in studying a law degree.

The Interview

  • The interview stage is an important part of the admissions process. It gives university staff a chance to discuss the above points with each applicant; and provides the opportunity for the applicant to meet the Dean, the Associate Dean, the Assistant Dean or other senior academic from the School of Law and ask any questions they may have.
