The Law degree at IMC's School of Law is fully accredited and thus offers an alternative to study in a public university. Our accreditation includes approval from the Commonwealth Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) and the NSW Legal Practice Admissions Board.

Our School of Law's accredited program meets the requirements for length and volume of study as well as covering the requisite areas of legal knowledge for admission to legal practice in NSW. These 11 areas of law and procedure are commonly known as the Priestley 11. They are contained in Schedule 1 of the Legal Profession Uniform Admission Rules.[1]

[1] The Legal Profession Uniform Admission Rules 2015 also specify that the academic requirement for admission includes completing an academic course for the equivalent of at least three years’ full-time study of law.

A clear path to a range of career options when you study for a LLB in Sydney

A law degree opens many doors to professional careers. Legal practice is one career option. Before admission to legal practice, graduates of the School of Law, like most other law graduates in Australia, will need to undertake an additional Practical Legal Training (PLT) course which supplements the study undertaken at law school.

For those who do not have an immediate interest in legal practice, graduates will be able to use their research, analytical, communication and negotiation, and other skills learnt in their law course in a range of career pathways. A law degree is an excellent preparation for many professional roles in our increasingly complex, interrelated, globalised environment.

Course Description

This program provides students with a course of studies leading to the award of a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree. The degree is designed to equip students with the intellectual, critical and professional skills needed for success in the practice of law and other professional career paths.

In addition to core subjects, the program offers a range of elective subjects and extra-curricular activities, including international exchange and internship opportunities, enabling students to put into practice the knowledge and skills acquired in the academic environment.

Upon completion, students can enrol in another institution for the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice, and after successful completion may apply to the Legal Profession Admission Board for admission as legal practitioners.


4 years full time (8 semesters, 2 semesters per year), for students admitted without a prior degree.

Assessment Methods

In the Bachelor of Laws course students will build a set of academic and professional legal skills in research, oral and written communication skills, self-management, ethical consciousness and teamwork.

Forms of assessment vary among units and include quizzes, tests and open book examinations (both online and in traditional invigilated format), case notes, research assignments, hypothetical problem solving exercises, client written advices, moots and ADR and advocacy exercises.
