Want to study both law and business at University? Our LLB (Hons) Law with Business course combines both subjects, and allows you to take a year-long industry placement. Delivered by a team of academics, internationally-recognised researchers and respected former professional practitioners, our LLB (Hons) Law with Business programme provides a practice based education in English law, with the fundamental aspects of business, opening up a wide range of career options when you graduate in both the business and law sectors. The aim of this pathway is to allow you to study the foundations of law and contracts, and to further develop your awareness of the mechanisms involved when considering business/consumer transactions, both domestically and internationally. The programme provides a rigorous academic discipline and also satisfies the first part of the academic stage of qualification required to become a solicitor or barrister. This programme provides comprehensive coverage of the foundations of legal knowledge together with a selection of business modules, and is relevant for you if you’re considering either a career in professional legal practice or within a business environment.
