This double degree prepares students to work in fields where law, psychology and mental health intersect. The degree covers topics like criminal law, the relationship between mental disorder and criminal responsibility, social psychology and psychological intervention. Through the law studies, students will gain practical experience through the University’s judicial mentoring program that allows students to spend a semester shadowing a judge or magistrate. Students can participate in additional studies including Honours in Laws and subjects from our Global Business Law program at a postgraduate level. The subjects will build students’ practical legal skills in advocacy, mediation and negotiation. Only the first two years of this course are offered in Bendigo. While it is possible to arrange long-distance learning, it is recommended to transfer to the Melbourne Campus to complete this degree with a wider selection of subjects. Law electives are also available in intensive delivery at Melbourne in summer and winter schools. This course is only available to domestic students.
