Course summary

About your course

There are many aspects of contemporary business practice which are enshrined in UK law. Anyone wishing to start their own business or work within a senior position in a company needs to understand how law impacts on the business environment. This new programme fuses law and business to create a dynamic and cross-disciplinary degree.

This hybrid degree programme gives you the flexibility to choose the most relevant modules from a suite of diverse and contemporary topics from both the School of Law and the Liverpool Business School's module catalogue.

The options on offer will carefully balance practice and theory and all students will be encouraged in their third year to undertake a year's work placement.

​This will provide you with opportunities to put all the theory you've learned into practice, as well as making important connections with future employers. Students who have undertaken a work placement on their degree programme often site this as one of the most important elements of their degree.

Assessment

Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose, but will usually include a combination of exams and coursework.

The programme modules use innovative teaching and assessment methods to ensure get the most out your degree. The skills you will be assessed on throughout the programme will include essay and report writing, presenting oral argument and seen and unseen examinations.

You will also be assessed on your transferrable skills through a range of formative and summative assessment techniques employed throughout the programme.

Employability

Law and business graduates have plenty of career opportunities.

​By combining subjects, you will be able to exploit career synergies which are often closely linked in industrial and commercial fields.

You will be able to pursue opportunities in a range of business environments, especially with a legal focus.

Alternatively you may, with further postgraduate study, choose to pursue a career in the legal profession as a solicitor or barrister, within the business and commercial fields.

Careers, Employability and Enterprise Service

We are committed to ensuring all of our students experience a transformation in their employability skills and mindset and their career trajectory. A wide range of opportunities and support is available to you, within and beyond your course.

Every undergraduate curriculum includes Future Focus, an e-learning resource and workshop designed to help you to develop personal insight into your talents, passion and purpose. It will enable you to become more proactive, adaptable and resilient in your awareness and approach to career possibilities. You’ll be encouraged to engage with personal and professional development opportunities.

A suite of learning experiences, services and opportunities is available to final year students to help ensure you leave with a great onward plan and the means to make it a reality.
