Business Law Degree

Business Law, also known as commercial law, is the branch of law that focuses on the rights, regulations and conduct of businesses which are mostly engaged with commerce, merchandising, trading and making sales.

Although Business Law is big enough to cover a whole degree, some institutions offer it as a specialisation through modules undertaken through another course. Students can opt to choose whether to study a specific Business Law Degree, or to study a Business Management Degree specialising in Business and Commercial Law.

Students can study business law at either undergraduate or postgraduate level. The most common undergraduate levels of study are BSc (Hons) and LLB (Hons). Both are qualifying law degrees. Alternatively, you can study a postgraduate degree in business law in the form of a Master’s degree.

Depending on the degree type it can take up to 4 years to complete a business law degree. Some institutions also allow students put their knowledge to practice through a year in the industry, out of education.

Throughout the course of a Business Law degree students can expect to cover related topics such as corporate contracts, tax classifications, human resources, business licensing, security law, intellectual property, transaction management, immigration laws and even pensions and benefits laws.

 

Most business law graduates leave university with the hope of finding law related jobs such as barrister, chartered legal executive, company secretary or solicitor. Due to the skills gained on a business law course, graduates can also go on to pursue other professions such as advice worker, accountant, human resources officer and trading standards executive.
