Course Description

Our 4-year BSc (Hons) in Business Studies and Law gives you a clear understanding of the interface between business activity and the legal framework within which it operates.

It prepares you for business careers with a legal dimension, developing insight and transferable skills that set you apart in a competitive job marketplace. You’ll also be able to pursue a legal career through further study after graduation, with the advantage of additional commercial knowledge.

You’ll learn from sector leading academics and seasoned business experts, and qualified solicitors and barristers with a wealth of real world experience.

Law has an increasing influence on many aspects of business. It governs, for example:

  • contractual arrangements
  • employment protection
  • consumer protection
  • many aspects of accounting and finance

The growing importance of law has created new job opportunities in careers such as management, banking and finance, journalism and teaching – as well as increased demand in traditional legal roles. 100% of our 2015 graduates in Business Studies and Law found employment or went on to further study within six months of graduating.

Assessment Methods

For all taught modules your learning will be directed, supported and reinforced through a combination of lectures, tutorials, small group seminars, virtual learning environment activities and guided private studies.
