Zack de Ruyter, Law and Commerce double degree

“I chose my Curtin degree because it offered a pathway to legal practice that was 18 months shorter than other institutions. Two semesters in, it feels like the right choice. I also found my degree unlocks a lot of doors, because law graduates can go on to work in many areas outside a law practice.”

Giovanna Bongiorno, Bachelor of Laws, Bachelor of Commerce (Finance)

“My course has been preparing me for my chosen career paths since day one, through the units I’m studying and through Curtin’s committees, including the Curtin Law Society. Curtin also does an incredible job of partnering with industry and firms to connect their students with employers and empower graduates to step into their dream jobs.”

Tamara Molan, Law and Psychology double degree

“My own experience with the family court inspired me to help fight for a worthy cause. With my double degree, I plan to enter into criminal or family law after I graduate so that I can make a positive change through my work.”
