“I had a nice relationship with all my lecturers. They were committed to helping you out with everything, especially if you showed that you cared about your work. Uni organised for me to go to Flinders Partners to work on software for innovation management. I was so pleased when they offered me a full-time position.”
Nadine Saadi // Flinders University student
A Flinders law degree will open many doors, but we know not all will lead to a courtroom. While some students will become the judges and prosecutors of tomorrow, others will chart their course in business, diplomacy, social justice and human rights. Our graduates work all over the world.
Potential occupations include:
- federal prosecutor
- graduate analyst
- graduate policy officer
- graduate solicitor.
Successful completion satisfies the academic and practical requirements underpinning eligibility to be admitted as a barrister and solicitor in South Australia.
When applying for admission to practise law, you will need to satisy the Board of Examiners that you are a ‘fit and proper person to be admitted’. You will also be required to give written authority for the Board of Examiners to seek a written report about you from Flinders University and any other teaching institution at which you have pursued a course of study (including degrees other than law).
