Entry to Law Part I
To become an LLB Part I (first-year) student, you must first apply and be accepted into one other bachelors degree programme for your non-law courses. You can combine your law degree with a wide range of conjoint programmes (in Advanced Science, Arts, Commerce, Design, Engineering, Global Studies, Health Sciences, Music, Property or Science).
Entry to Law Part II
There is no direct entry from secondary school into LLB Part II. You must first enrol in another university degree programme and also complete all LLB Part I pre-requisite courses. Not all students who complete Part I will be able to continue on to LLB Part II. Admission to Part II is limited and competitive. All applicants must go through a selection process. You will be selected on the basis of academic merit – your Part I results and results from your other university courses will be used to assess whether or not you will be selected for Part II. Special entry schemes for admission are available for domestic students. Selection and admission criteria for entry to LLB Part II may change each year.
Please note that the entry requirements for Law Part II are subject to change each year.
