Business Law and Management (with Foundation Year)

Course summary

This is a four-year programme that includes a year of foundational study and leads directly into the degree course. Our foundation year offers the chance to strengthen your skills, knowledge and confidence, before you advance to stage one of your honours degree. The BA (Hons) Business Law and Management aims to enable you to develop a customisable skill-set while still fulfilling the specific requirements of a specialist legal career. Our mantra is 'Get Competent, Get Qualified, Get Hired.' With this Business Law and Management degree, we hope to broaden your horizons beyond the traditional dichotomy of solicitors and barristers to embrace the other legal professionals, such as, for example, Paralegal, Legal Secretary, Conveyancing Technician, Licensed Conveyancer, and Probate Practitioner. Further, the multiperspectival approach taken means that those who may wish to go into the fields of business or management themselves will find plenty to whet their appetites. We aim to create an open, cheerful and intellectually stimulating environment in which to investigate the interrelation of law and business, particularly through the inclusion of highly original modules. In 'In-house Law', for example, you will get the opportunity to examine the role of the "General Counsel", the individual who is simultaneously a part of the business and an officer of the court; such a module is unique in the UK. We offer this programme with two study options. You can choose four years full-time or five years full-time which would include a one-year professional placement before your final year that will give you hands-on experience in a real-life working environment. This sandwich year would give you practical skills that many employers seek, giving you a competitive edge upon graduation.
