Business law combines commercial law with real-world practices of business. Whether you are advising a client on setting up a company or dealing with a complex business contract, you will be equipped with a specialist understanding of both business law and the wider commercial world. Organisations of all sizes need employees with a broad understanding of corporate and other law, as well as people with good corporate awareness, initiative and communication skills. This degree will give you the legal background you need to get ahead in business and by selecting from a list of designated option modules you will undertake a course with a focus on Business Law.

To help you take the first steps on your legal career we aim to give you as much experience as possible. Our Partners in Law scheme is a pretty unique service that could give you all the support you need. We can provide you with networking, mentoring and training opportunities through our links with regional and internationally renowned legal firms.

Firms that are currently part of Partners in Law include Pinsent Masons, DLA Piper, Walker Morris, Eversheds, Hammonds, Chadwick Lawrence, Armitage Sykes, Ramsdens Solicitors, Eaton Smith, Ridley and Hall, Switalskis, Wilkinson Woodward and Kirklees Council Legal Services.

IMPORTANT NOTICE If you are thinking of becoming a solicitor please read the following statement which we received in April 2017 from the Solicitors Regulation Authority.The SRA specifies the qualification requirements for solicitors.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has announced it will be introducing the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE), the earliest date for introduction is September 2020.

This will be a national assessment for anyone who wants to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales. It will provide a fair and consistent assessment for all candidates regardless of whether they have taken a law degree or qualified through new routes like the solicitor apprenticeship.

If you have already started your law degree, or will do so before the SQE is introduced, you will be able to finish and qualify in the same way as before or qualify under the new system. The SRA will be providing information and guidance about how to qualify in the new system so keep checking its website.
