La Trobe Law School Entry Requirements
If you’re a high school leaver or haven’t been to university before, an undergraduate Bachelor of Laws is for you. University graduates can study a postgraduate Juris Doctor degree. To learn more about the different types of law degrees, see our Law Degrees Explained page.
High school leavers can apply through VTAC to study a 4-year Bachelor of Laws (Honours) or a 5-year Combined Bachelor of Laws (Honours) with majors from Arts, Commerce, Criminology, Global Studies, Information Technology or Psychological Science.
High school leavers are assessed based on their ATAR marks. You can use the La Trobe ATAR calculator here.
Applicants with higher degrees are assessed based on their academic performance, or their ATAR if completed less than one year before the degree.
Applicants who have not completed an Australian Year 12 or equivalent are ineligible to apply.
La Trobe law school offers ATAR adjustment factors through the Special Entry Access Scheme for First Nations applicants.
If you are a First Nations student applying through VTAC, you should use Category 1: Personal Information & Location to receive 15 adjustment factor points.
You can also learn about study pathways into law by downloading the La Trobe Alternative Pathways Guide (pages 12-13).
La Trobe operates on a two semester calendar. A full-time study load is 8 subjects per year. Students can also enrol in a part time study load, which is 4 subjects per year.
