Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws (double degree) 文學士及法學士 (雙學位課程)

BA&LLB

Short Description

This double degree programme in arts and law provides students with the opportunity to pursue their studies in arts and the law, and to explore the connections between the two.  On completion of the five-year programme, students will be awarded two degrees - Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws.  In addition to preparing students for legal practice, the programme cultivates an appreciation of the narrative dimensions and rhetoric of legal discourse and of the overlaps between literary and legal histories. The curriculum provides a solid foundation for legal practice as well as a wide variety of careers beyond the law, including journalism, media and communications, the arts and culture, and politics.
