Bond’s Faculty of Law is recognized as one of Australia’s leading law schools. With a focus on teaching both the substance and skills of the law, it offers a premier law education experience through small, personalized classes where academics know their students by name and access to outstanding facilities in the multi-million-dollar Legal Skills Centre.

Thousands of Canadians have studied law in Australia at Bond University and are successfully practicing in Canada. The Bond Canadian Law Students’ Association hosts NCA process seminars and provides information and support for Canadians wishing to return to Canada.

Learning the law is intense, so Bond only accepts 180 students each year to ensure class numbers stay small to give you the personalized approach to teaching for which Bond is renowned.

  • Annual cohort for the undergraduate degree capped at 180
  • Small class sizes creating a personalized learning environment
  • An embedded Skills and Professionalism program
  • An outstanding mooting program and other opportunities to gain practical experience while studying
  • State-of-the-art facilities
  • Three semesters per year allowing you to finish your degree in under 3 years


The Bachelor of Laws (LLB) prepares students for a career as a legal professional. It will provide you with a thorough grounding in essential areas of substantive law and access to a wide choice of law elective subjects, including the option of completing a specialization. An integrated skills and professionalism program is embedded in the degree and focuses on core legal skills essential to the practice of law. The Bond LLB provides an engaging learning experience that will challenge you academically and prepare you for a legal career.

The Bond LLB focuses on the academic development of students, providing an exceptional, high-quality learning experience characterized by a professional and practical emphasis. You will learn essential skills such as legal research and reasoning, legal writing and drafting, oral communication and advocacy, dispute resolution and collaboration, legal ethics and professionalism in a simulated legal environment with state-of-the-art facilities.

You will also gain experience in the Bond Law Clinics, which work with the profession and community on a pro-bono basis or to compete internationally or domestically in one of Bond’s many pre-eminent moot teams.

The Bond Faculty of Law offers four Canadian law subjects:

  • Foundations of Canadian Law

The program is offered over three semesters each year—September, January, and May.

“Countless resources available”

Facilities (10/10), help services (10/10).  Countless resources available to students. I dislike short tutorial classes (1h) and long lectures (2h). Should be reversed.

“…the smaller class sizes makes keeping up with programs and finding mentors within the school super easy”

Yes, it is a beautiful campus. the social life there is phenomenal and makes me wish I was still a party guy, but the smaller class sizes makes keeping up with programs and finding mentors within the school super easy. This really is exactly what I want to do and I am learning things that I always wished I could have been.

“It is a good environment with lots of resource”

It is a good environment with lots of resources that students have access to. Most of the professors are very committed to our success and learning process.

“I love my uni and the program.”

I love my uni and the program. It's very challenging and intense and hard (although that's expected on any law school) but there are so many opportunities and support given.
