The Bachelor of Laws (Honours) as a graduate-entry program requires three-and-a-half years of full-time study (or the equivalent part-time). It is only available as an exit award for students who are enrolled in a Bachelor of Laws and Legal Practice (Graduate Entry (Honours) and who do not wish to undertake the Practical Legal Training component.

To qualify for the Bachelor of Laws (Honours) as a graduate-entry student, a student must complete 126 units with a grade of P or NGP or better in each topic, comprising 90 units of compulsory topics, 22.5 units of option topics and a 13.5 units dissertation topic, as set out below.
Option topics may be taken from topics not offered or cross-listed by the College only with the written permission of the Dean (Education). Under no circumstances will permission be given to take topics where entry and course requirements are not met, or the Dean (Education) has designated them as unacceptable.
The award of a grade of Fail (F) on more than one occasion in the same topic, which may include attempts of the same topic undertaken in other awards, may constitute prima facie evidence of unsatisfactory progress for the purposes of the University's Policy on Student Progress.
Not all option topics are necessarily available in a given year.
The Dean (Education) may specify that two or more topics represent unacceptable combinations.
