Law courses in Australia

Can you see yourself cross-examining witnesses in a courtroom? Do you like a good debate? Do you like reading, research and analysis? Many students see law as offering a secure career in what can be a high-status profession, but it’s worth keeping in mind that law courses are usually very tough to enter and can involve a great deal of hard work. Careers in law aren’t always as glamorous as they seem either — you are just as likely to end up working as a suburban solicitor as you are to snap up a role strutting around the Supreme Court.
