Course summary

Why Business Law? 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. How will you learn? * To help you take the first steps on your legal career we aim to give you as much experience as possible. You will learn through practical application and delivered lectures, workshops, seminars and group work sessions. Our strong alumni networks provide wide opportunities to engage with local legal practitioners working in regionally and internationally renowned firms.Our Law School Professional Mentoring scheme is a particular success which enables our students to bridge the gap between education and working in the legal sector. 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 Autumn 2021. 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 is providing information and guidance about how to qualify in the new system so keep checking its website. Please find more details on the SRA's website here - http://https//www.sra.org.uk/sra/policy/sqe/ The Legal Advice Clinic was set up by students in 2013 in response to the legal aid cuts which left the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in society without access to legal representation. The university invested in a clinic which is innovatively placed off campus in a shop in the town centre. Over the last academic year students, working with academics and local solicitors, have helped hundreds of people who otherwise may not have access to legal help and assistance. Volunteering in the legal advice clinic represents transformational learning at its best and compliments your theoretical studies. You'll develop into reflective practitioners and realise the importance of professionalism. Through advising real clients in real life situations You'll also see a side of law that cannot be taught in a lecture theatre or tutorial and the real impact that the law can have on individuals. For three years in a row, our students were shortlisted for the prestigious LawWorks and Attorney General Awards, winning 'Best Contribution by a Team of UK Students' in 2015. ~ Gemma Manning, Senior Lecturer
