Honours

An award of Honours signals that a student has achieved high order legal research competencies and a high standard of academic excellence in their LLB degree. Completion of the LLB with Honours requires students to develop skills in legal research methodologies. These skills are highly relevant to a range of professional career options, including academic careers, research, policy and government advisory positions, as well as enhancing the range of legal research skills that can be applied to conventional forms of legal practice. In addition, employers in the legal profession tend to look favourably upon an Honours award as indicating that a student has achieved a high standard of excellence in their undergraduate law studies.

Entry to the LLB Honours program is open only to students who attain excellence in their LLB studies and are close to the completion of their degree. The Honours program involves the completion of two units of study: LAW10181 Legal Research: Context, Method and Perspective and LAW00524 Independent Legal Research. Together, the two Honours units require the preparation of a sound research methodology and proposal to support the completion of a research thesis.
