Bachelor of Business / Bachelor of Laws (Honours)
Why study business and law?
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. As such, the Bachelor of Business/Bachelor of Laws (Honours) combined degree is extremely valuable if you wish to undertake a career as a corporate lawyer.
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 future success and development in a competitive environment. Employers recognise that as a graduate of both business and law, you are professional, highly motivated and possess business acumen as well as legal knowledge.
