Law and Management BA (Hons)

Law and Management Degree

1. Overview

Combine law with management for this degree and work towards a career in management and the legal profession. This course will equip you with a sound grounding in law as well as key business skills and knowledge.

The high level of flexibility within the course allows you, in particular at honours level, to shape your degree to specialise in the areas you develop an interest in. You will also develop the key skills which are highly valued in the workplace. Practical experience is developed through oral presentations, legal debates, group work and research and writing exercises.

In year 3 you can undertake a work placement, giving you the opportunity to establish links with potential employers and equipping you for the working world.

You will also have the opportunity to take part in internal, national and international mooting competitions (legal debating), giving you additional practical experience.
