Law courses teach students research skills alongside analytical, critical and logical thinking. Students are encouraged to communicate that which has been gathered in a succinct and powerful way, with an emphasis on constructing arguments. Areas of the law that are studied include property, contract, tort and criminal law, to name a few. International students may be required to undergo further testing upon return to their home country, in order to be practicing lawyers.
That being said, some students choose to study law, though they do not intend to become lawyers. These students may end up working in academics, government, business, not-for-profit organisations, and in any number of fields. However, given the intense focus on different aspects of the legal system, it is recommended that students have a passion for law given the rigorous commitment of a degree.
