This three-year honours degree in Law and Business is the only such programme in this field available within the northwest and midland region. This is a brand-new innovative degree that has been developed in partnership with industry.

Students will divide their time between law and business, while also exploring the connections between these fields of study. Students will explore complex and key issues by drawing on a broad reservoir of legal/business knowledge and computing technologies required for the commercial world.



The law strand covers core law subjects to give students a good foundation should they wish to continue their studies further to qualify as a solicitor or a barrister. They may also pursue opportunities in emerging areas such as Governance and Compliance, Data Protection/Privacy, Company Secretarial, Business Sustainability, Ethics and Social Media.

The programme also includes several ‘professional skills’ modules which will provide students with the practical skills and knowledge they will need should they wish to explore career destinations such as In-house Counsel, Legal Executive, Court Personnel, Advocacy Workers, Disability Officers and in the area of Alternative Dispute Resolution.


The business strand covers core business subjects to equip students for success in business. They will analyse and evaluate business and associated legal issues encountered by organisations.

To support a growing need for, and understanding of, data, social media presence and digital change, the business major also includes learning in the fields of ICT Applications, Data Analytics, Web and Social Media Analytics and Digital Transformation.

Combining both strands, students will be given an opportunity to undertake research for an applied project or dissertation immersing them in emerging areas relevant to professionals working in a range of legal and business settings.
