The BA/BSc (Hons) Business and Law course aims to provide students with knowledge of the key areas of both business and law subjects essential to a business and management environment. In today’s competitive, global economy knowledge of legal systems and business law gives managers that all important edge whilst an understanding of business functions and practice will benefit any law professional operating in business. Combining these two disciplines brings enhanced career options and a greater freedom of choice with routes to a range of careers in management, law, finance and banking and the public sector.
The course is structured to help you build on skills and knowledge that you have already acquired. By taking another year to gain a full honours degree, you will be making a very rewarding investment. Our course addresses the broader aspects of business organisation and management culture, while also providing an insight into corporate and consumer legislation, corporate regulation and other legal aspects of business enterprise.
You will be equipped with a real understanding of how legal considerations have an impact on virtually every aspect of management activity.
The BA/BSc (Hons) Law and Business degree will provide students with a deep knowledge and critical understanding of law and business theory and practice, in areas which include legal processes and skills, marketing, human resources, global business development, strategic management and International finance. Modern business and the legal system are inextricably linked. Lawyers represent commercial interest in both private and public sectors and require a thorough understanding of the mechanics of business structures and operations.
This programme will give a thorough grounding in English law and will examine the constraints it imposes and flexibility it allows during practice. It’s particularly suited to individuals aiming for careers in management within the legal arena, where a background in both law and business is pertinent. Upon graduation, intending solicitors will complete the Legal Practice Course and intending barristers will complete the Bar Professional Training Course.
