LLB Law with Business
Lawyers can best assist commercial clients if they’ve got a sound knowledge of business practice. Equally, businesses can benefit from a good understanding of the legal system. Our LLB Business with Law allows you to gain a crucial awareness of the law within its social and business contexts, and enables you to develop the critical, reflective and analytical skills required to succeed within the complementary disciplines of law and business.
Studying this combination of subjects will benefit anyone looking to enter the business world. The knowledge and skills which you develop throughout the course provide a thorough grounding in essential areas of the law and business, and will be greatly valued by employers. You explore topics including:
- Contract law
- Company law
- Equity and trusts
- Management and marketing
- The international business environment
In the School of Law at Essex, we specialise in commercial law, public law, and human rights law. We are 3rd in the UK for research power in law (THE research power measure, REF2021).
