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.
