Develop a solid grounding in legal principles while being introduced to the study of business organisations and their management, within the context of a complex and constantly changing commercial environment, with the Law with Business course from University of Essex Online.
Law and business are both widely recognised and highly respected subjects, and the knowledge gained on our short online CertHE Law with Business course will open up many opportunities for you to develop your career both inside and outside the fields of law and business.
Alongside subject-specific knowledge, this course helps you develop skills in a number of areas including research, presentation and critical thinking.
This short course can be achieved as a stand-alone qualification or used as a stepping stone towards a full LLB (Hons) Law with Business.
The legal knowledge gained from the CertHE Law with Business could benefit roles in finance, human resources, education, local and central government, the voluntary sector or management.
The CertHE Law with Business can also be used as a stepping stone towards studying for our LLB (Hons) Law with Business degree which is recognised as a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD) in England and Wales and is the first step if you are considering practising law professionally.
If you want to progress to complete a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD), you must also complete all your degree studies in not more than six years from start to finish. The minimum standard for a QLD undertaken for the purpose of completion of the Academic Stage for qualification as a barrister is lower second class honours.
