We have developed a course for those students specifically interested in obtaining an overview of aspects of Law and wish to understand the functioning of business, together with an appreciation of legalities, accounting principles and management duties. These are the broader skills that are required of practising solicitors who must be commercially aware to demonstrate knowledge of clients' businesses, manage a client's money and be prepared to run a solicitor's practice as a business.
The law and business world works hand - in - hand towards the successful management of businesses. The law provides the framework for successful enterprise as well as the means for redress when conflicts arise. You will be provided with a range of core modules that will help you appreciate the roles of both.
The University of Chester, in partnership with KCB, is able to offer a regulated Qualifying Law Degree, which grants you onward access to further training as a solicitor or barrister - should that be your career ambition. This is combined with the Business Management modules to further provide you with increased versatility to specialise on more commercially - focused endeavours.
You will be well prepared for the demands, challenges and rewards of a prestigious, intellectual, dynamic and fast - paced career.
Such is the nature of the professional services industry that there is an increasing trend for a variety of services to be offered 'under one roof'. This course will be of significant benefit to those that are entrepreneurially - minded and also wish to develop the ability to think through a wide range of issues, which is encouraged on this degree programme.
