Carear PathBecause of the broad spectrum of subjects studied, career opportunities for legal studies and business graduates are numerous. The wide-ranging nature of knowledge and skills gained by such graduates makes them an attractive proposition for any prospective employer. Graduates have the opportunity to add value for both employers and themselves on a daily basis. Graduates can test theories, apply concepts and undertake practical project work. Many will pursue a professional legal qualification either as solicitors (Law Society) or barristers (Kings Inns). The BA enables students to sit the Law Society’s entrance examinations and students may also apply for entry to the Kings Inns Diploma course. Others may wish to professionally qualify outside the jurisdiction in England & Wales or indeed the US. Students wishing to pursue further qualifications can proceed to postgraduate programmes up to Masters Level or beyond. Regardless of students’ career choices, a combination of both legal and business training provides prospective employers or institutions of further study, with a solid platform from which to recruit. Students who complete their BA Degree in Legal and Business Studies may be eligible for transfer to the final year of the BA (Hons) in Business - Law (Level 8 award).
