From your first few weeks as a student you'll undertake law courses where experience-based exercises are integrated into the curriculum.
You'll see what it's like to argue a case and provide legal advice, gaining valuable skills that you can apply in reasoning, reporting, analysis, negotiation, communication and advocacy.
Be flexible with our Trimester
Law at the UniSA is taught over three ten-week trimesters per year rather than the normal two semesters. Our Trimesters run in February, June and September.
The trimester system provides you with flexible study arrangements, allowing you to tailor your learning to meet your social, personal and study needs. It also means you have the opportunity to complete the Bachelor of Laws four-year degree in three years, or the five-year Laws Double Degree in just four years
Learn from first year in our Moot Court
You'll learn what it is like to be ‘at the bar’ in our Moot Court, a courtroom-like space in which you learn what is involved in arguing a case before a judge.
Students will be involved in mock trials from their first year. You'll be presented with a set of facts to which you'll need to apply legal principles. You'll then argue the strength of your case before a 'judge', who provides feedback on your oral advocacy skills.
Engage with the profession and be prepared
This final year law course allows you to implement the practical learning from your degree. Through this course you'll solve the legal problems of real clients and engage in industry related projects.
A key component of this course is the placement that you must undertake, either in an external organisation or within our own student-run, in-house Legal Advice Clinic.

Provide legal advice to real people at the Legal Advice Clinic
The UniSA Legal Advice Clinic provides confidential and free legal advice to members of the community.
As part of your degree, you'll meet with real clients to give free legal advice on matters such as traffic accidents, consumer credit disputes and criminal law.
Gain first-hand experience in interviewing clients and practising your drafting skills, all under the supervision of a dedicated managing solicitor.
This experience provides you with the clinical legal skills and knowledge required for the practice of law.
