Bachelor of Business/ Bachelor of Laws

With businesses and corporations subject to extensive regulation, a law degree is a highly valued and useful asset within the business sector.

Many large companies employ in-house lawyers to provide specialist legal advice. In-house lawyers must not only have in-depth legal knowledge but also possess a strong understanding of business affairs. An advanced understanding of industrial relations, marketing or business theories and practices in combination with a Bachelor of Laws can underpin a successful career in corporate law.

Even if you choose not to practice as a lawyer, a law degree will enhance your business qualifications and increase your employability. The global business world demands highly qualified employees who will contribute to the future success and development of organisations in a competitive environment. Employers recognise that as a graduate of both business and law, you are professional, highly motivated and possess both business acumen and legal knowledge.
