This degree will give you a clear understanding of the interface between business activity and the legal framework within which it operates. Studying 50% Business and Management modules and 50% Law subjects, you will receive a solid grounding in both disciplines. You will study how businesses operate in a legal context, and what legal provisions are relevant and important for businesses. Law has an increasing influence on many aspects of business. It governs, for example, contractual arrangements, employment protection, consumer protection and many aspects of accounting and finance. The growing importance of law has created new job opportunities in careers that link business and law. Career opportunities exist in general management, banking and finance, journalism, teaching, legal executive and paralegal professions, therefore studying a degree that combines both disciplines sets you apart in the job market. This interdisciplinary degree prepares you for business careers with a legal dimension, developing a valuable set of transferable skills to help set you apart in a competitive job marketplace. Through a stimulating exploration of both disciplines you will develop adaptable organisational and communication skills. You will also build a foundation of essential business and legal knowledge while honing your research, analysis and critical thinking skills. Depending on your modules you can also develop specific skills in advanced data analysis, business and financial decision making, public speaking, collaboration and team work, and legal advocacy.
