Deakin’s Graduate Certificate of Accounting and Law is designed for graduates who need specialist legal knowledge in their roles (regulatory, compliance or risk management positions), and who wish to combine this knowledge with an accounting qualification.
Graduates will have gained knowledge of accounting and commercial law, which may be built on through undertaking a graduate diploma or Master of Accounting and Law.
To complete the Graduate Certificate of Accounting and Law, students must complete the three day Law Orientation Program and attain a total of 4 credit points. The 4 credit points consists of 2 credit points of core units, a 1 credit point Accounting elective and a 1 credit points Law elective unit chosen from a list. Most units (think of units as 'subjects') are equal to 1 credit point.
