The BA/LLB takes five years (10 semesters) if you are studying full-time. You will need to complete 675 points, including:
- 255 points from BA courses
- 405 points from LLB courses
- 15 points from General Education
In your first year you will need to complete three Stage I core LLB courses, and five Stage I courses from the BA. You will continue to take a mix of Law courses and Arts courses in each of your second, third, fourth and fifth years. You will also need to include a General Education course in one of these years.
You would usually need to enrol in nine 15-point courses (135 points) each year if you want to complete in five years (10 semesters). This is a higher load than the standard enrolment of 120 points a year. Alternatively you could complete in 5.5 years (11 semesters) by enrolling in 120 points per year and adding an extra 15-point course in one semester.
