About this program

Bachelor of Arts in Law and Accounting

Within the business world a strong legal background assists the work of many accounting specialists. Equally, a firm grounding in all aspects of accounting, including taxation, deepens the lawyer’s understanding of business transactions. The course reflects a demanding, broad and practical programme of study which will provide you with a firm foundation in both law and accounting. The combination allows you to make your choice of profession when you have a better knowledge of your strengths and of the law and accounting disciplines.
