What is the difference between Law and Criminal Justice?
Law and Criminal Justice are two very different subjects. Students
must complete a Bachelor of Laws if they want to practice law,
however, people who study law work not only as lawyers, but also as
judges’ clerks, government policy analysts, and in leadership positions
in the business community. The Bachelor of Criminal Justice combines
multidisciplinary academic study with a strong vocational focus,
and looks at the whole criminal justice system and its processes,
including governance, enforcement, rehabilitation and improvement.
It is relevant to careers in areas such as law enforcement, corrections,
offender rehabilitation, working with young offenders, criminal
law, security and border control. More information about these
qualifications and career opportunities can be found here: Law and
