About the Course
Start of expanded content
The entertainment industry creates unique legal and management challenges that require specialised knowledge.
This double degree offers two very distinct areas of study that enable you to combine the expertise, skills and knowledge of a law degree with training in the entertainment and music industries.
You can have it all - nourish your creative side, while also testing your capacity for clear thinking by combining music with the study of law. You might focus on one profession above the other, finding work as a professional musician or practising law as a barrister or solicitor, or combine the two in your future choices.
This course leads to two separate degrees:
- the Bachelor of Laws (Honours), and
- the Bachelor of Music.
You will gain all the benefits of each degree course (see Bachelor of Laws (Honours)/Bachelor of Music) and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in your chosen work.
You can specialise in music performance (which you cannot do in the Bachelor of Arts), composition, creative music technology or ethnomusicology and musicology. And you can choose from a wide range of law electives to focus your law expertise as you wish.
This unique degree combination will let you lead the way in the entertainment industry. You will be able to direct your skills towards production, artist management, entertainment law or arts administration. A law degree is an excellent preparation for diverse law-related careers within the judiciary, government, media, business, industry and politics.
