Flinders University offers a Bachelor of Laws and Legal Practice [LLB/LP] degree which meets external South Australian Legal Practitioners Education and Admissions Council accreditation requirements and provides graduates with the necessary qualification to be admitted as a legal practitioner in South Australia.
Key legal practice skills are embedded and assessed in compulsory topics throughout the LLB/LP degree.
Students with health conditions, impairments, learning or other disabilities
Flinders University is committed to providing an inclusive environment and community for all students and staff, regardless of their ability or disability. Students may be provided with adjustments in teaching and/or assessment methods, provided such adjustments do not compromise the safety or wellbeing of any person, and technical and academic standards are maintained.
The inherent requirements of the LLB/LP degree are the fundamental skills and abilities that you must be able to achieve in order to demonstrate the essential learning outcomes of the degree.
If you intend to enrol in a LLB/LP degree at Flinders Law School, look carefully at the inherent requirements listed in this statement and think about whether you might experience challenges in meeting them.
This statement provides realistic information about these requirements so you can make an informed judgement about your ability to fulfil them before you enrol in the LLB/LP.
Students who anticipate that they might experience challenges in meeting the inherent requirements of this course are encouraged to discuss their concerns with a Disability Advisor in the first instance. The Student Disability Service is free and confidential to prospective and enrolled students.
Students with disabilities may be provided with accommodations to enable them to meet the inherent requirements of the LLB/LP degree if the adjustment is:
- logistically reasonable; and
- likely to result in the student being able to perform the skills adequately and in a timely manner.
An alternative option - Bachelor of Laws
If you anticipate that you might experience challenges in meeting these inherent requirements for legal practice, you may wish to consider enrolling in a Bachelor of Laws [LLB] degree.
However, it is important to note that:
- the LLB does not provide graduates with the necessary qualification to be admitted as a legal practitioner in South Australia.
- many of the LLB core topics contain legal practice skills as part of their assessment requirements and the inherent requirements may still apply in relation to those core topics.
