About this program

LLB (Hons) Law with Business

Law and business share a close relationship. Business knowledge is important to law firms as commercial law is the largest legal sector in the UK. Knowledge of the law is also extremely important to businesses. You can combine both on this LLB (Hons) Law with Business degree.

The course is a qualifying law degree (QLD). It fulfils the requirements of the academic stage of training as specified by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board. This means that you can progress to the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or the vocational stage of training for the bar without additional study.

As well as core legal subjects, you’ll study key business and management topics and get to choose from various optional modules to suit your own interests. These currently include Commercial Law and White Collar Crime.

After the course, you could continue your legal training or take up employment in areas such as finance, commerce, recruitment or the public sector. You could also continue your studies on a Master’s degree.
