UWE Bristol - LLB Hons Law with Business

UWE Bristol

LLB Hons Law with Business

Gain a solid foundation in both business and law, and graduate with a degree that allows you to train as a solicitor or barrister or brand yourself a business expert.

Why study law with business?

In a competitive global economy, knowledge of legal systems in business gives managers an edge. Understanding business functions and practice also benefits law professionals operating in demanding business environments.

Combining these two disciplines gives you greater career choice, with routes to roles in management, law, finance, the public sector and beyond.

Why UWE Bristol?

LLB(Hons) Law with Business gives you a solid foundation in business and law.

In your first year, your time will be split between both subjects. In your second and final year, you'll study 75% law and 25% business.

Innovative modules in commercial, company, international trade and employment law run alongside business modules spanning marketing, strategic management and managing people.

You'll be taught by experts from the reputable Law and Business Schools and be part of an active community of students and staff with a commitment to enterprise. 

This course allows you to work towards a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD). This gives you the professional qualifications needed to progress to the Legal Practice Course (LPC LLM) or Bar Training Course (BTC) to train as a solicitor or barrister.

Gain valuable real-world skills and experience through study trips and business-related work placements. Mock trials, law simulations and Pro Bono work will ensure you graduate with a practical understanding of law and familiarity with the industry.
