Course summary

Are you an advocate for equal opportunities and fairness? Are you a stickler for rules and regulations? Our LLB (Hons) Business Law degree provides the opportunity to study a range of areas relevant to the governance and regulation of business and gain an insider knowledge of business law. Having a degree that meets the requirements of the Solicitors Regulatory Authority, the academic stage requirements for the new, centralised external Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE) and Bar council will provide the perfect opportunity to kickstart your legal career. Business can be a challenging landscape but a degree in Business Law will give you the skills and competencies to help you make your mark in the field. This course has a shared first year across multiple specialisms. After your first year, if you want to study a different specialism you can choose to change between LLB (Hons) Business Law and LLB (Hons) Law. Why study this subject? If you want to immerse yourself in a fast-paced and versatile subject, then look no further than business law. Not only will you be able to develop a strong foundation in law by learning about the law, you will also cultivate a specialist knowledge of how law and regulation impact on business. Business can be a challenging landscape, with international trade, emergence of electronic commerce, contracts being exchanged and corporate governance to adhere to. Gaining an LLB (Hons) in business law prepares you to work in the legal profession, business, legal aspects of finance, insurance, corporate negotiating and government services. Why study at Buckinghamshire New University? BNU is a student focused and employer led university. You are at the forefront of all that we do. We are proud of our high lecturer to student ratio, and put you as our priority.

Our law programme has been specifically designed with an international and contemporary perspective. It is designed to focus on contemporary issues in law with an innovative teaching approach that underscores employability and professional skills and practice. Not all learning is done inside of a lecture theatre. There are plenty of chances to visit magistrates’ courts to participate in bail applications, visit Parliament and law courts to experience first-hand how they operate on a day-to-day basis. You can also meet guest speakers from across the legal industry, including judges, magistrates and law firms, to learn more about how you can apply your knowledge in the workplace. Our Students’ Union has a range of societies you can join free of charge. One of these societies is the Mooting Society and this gives the perfect opportunity to pursue your passion for law outside of your timetable. It allows you to meet with likeminded students and practise court proceedings and arguing your case. You even have the opportunity to participate in varsity and national mooting competitions. What are my career prospects? Studying this degree means you will gain the knowledge and skills required to successfully complete the vocational stage of legal education, stages one and two of the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) for a career as a solicitor, or the Bar Training Course (BTC) for a career as a Barrister. Alternatively it will also prepare you to undertake postgraduate academic legal study. You will also have gained skills in communication and analysis. These attributes are attractive to a range of graduate employers, including those offering careers in legal practice, law enforcement, regulation and compliance, policy making and the justice system.
