Business Law

Business Law is a fascinating subject, providing a detailed insight into the role of law in modern business practice. If you're interested in having a career in business, management, HR, commerce or government, - or perhaps are intending to setting up your own business - the Business Law degree at St Mary’s will give you the foundation you need to be successful.

The Business Law programme - which can only be studied as a joint honours degree - is designed for students who do not necessarily want to become lawyers, but have an interest in law and want to develop a detailed understanding of its operation in the business environment. On the Business Law programme, you will study Law and one of the following subjects: Business Management, History or Tourism.

The focus on practical (as well as theoretical teaching) means you can develop the analytical and critical skills essential for the commercial workplace. You'll also have the opportunity to study a range of specialist subjects that are relevant to your own aspirations.

With a wide range of option modules - including work-based learning placements - and a variety of assessment methods, such as simulated negotiation exercises and presentations, you will learn a range of skills and academic areas to discover where your true interests lie.
