Two new pathways leading to the UTS Bachelor of Laws have been developed by UTS College. Beginning with the Spring 2022 UTS intake, students enrolled in UTS College’s Diploma of Business or Diploma of Communication programmes have the option of transferring their credits from UTS to the University of Technology Sydney’s (UTS) Bachelor of Laws programme. 

Why choose Law at UTS?

According to the QS Rankings by Subject 2021, the UTS Law School is well respected, placing in the top 100 globally and seventh in Australia. Graduates are valued for their capacity for problem-solving, teamwork, and lateral thinking. In fact, within four months of finishing their study, 92.1% of UTS Law students have jobs. 

New Legal Futures and Technology major

This brand-new major, a first for Australia, puts UTS at the nexus of law and technology. Graduates are prepared for employment that call for the ability to innovate, interact with technology, and adhere to new rules that emerge as a result of unimaginable change and disruptive technologies. The upcoming generation of company secretaries, lawyers, and compliance professionals must be prepared for the effects of AI, automation, and machine learning on traditional occupations. Graduates from this major will be ready for a world where smart contracts, blockchain, and other fourth-industrial revolution advancements are commonplace.

A career edge for international studentsProfessor Li advises foreign students to pursue legal studies in Australia. She claims: “It takes knowledge of several legal industries to work in a premier multinational law firm. We live in a globalised society, therefore it makes sense to learn about another country’s legal system when you consider that multinational enterprises with worldwide clientele account for 80% of the work done in the legal sector. Australian law school admissions are also simpler than those in many other nations because there is no exam requirement.”
