The Bachelor of Laws (Honours) requires four 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 (Honours) and who do not wish to undertake the Practical Legal Training component.

Credit may be granted for topics taken at other institutions. However, except in exceptional circumstances approved by the Dean (Education), a majority of units towards the degree must be obtained from topics offered by Flinders University.
To qualify for the Bachelor of Laws (Honours) a student must complete 144 units with a grade of P or NGP or better in each topic, comprising 90 units of compulsory topics, 40.5 units of option topics and a 13.5 unit dissertation topic, as set out below.
All students must complete at least one option topic that has been designated by the Dean (Education) as an international/comparative option; and at least one option topic that has been designated by the Dean (Education) as an Indigenous/Social Justice option.#
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.
