Why Canadians should study law at Griffith University
Griffith Law School is ranked in the top 100 law schools in the 2015/2016 QS World University Rankings. Griffith students learn from award-winning teachers who have been recognised by the Australian Government’s Office of Learning and Teaching for their outstanding teaching quality. In addition to studying the core areas of legal practice, students may choose from a range of exciting electives across five areas: global law and governance; law and commerce; environment and social justice; theories and contexts of law; and clinical and legal professional practice, which includes clinical courses that offer practical legal skills, insights and experiences.
Griffith’s Bachelor of Laws (graduate entry) degree now includes courses that will equip you to sit the NCA accreditation exams when you finish your degree. You can even sit these exams at the Gold Coast. With a Griffith law degree you could seek admission to practice in both Australia and Canada.
