What will I learn?
This joint degree will give you an advanced understanding of the business world, alongside a solid grounding in legal studies. It is delivered by Warwick Law School, one of the UK’s most prestigious law schools, and Warwick Business School (WBS), a globally renowned business school.
In addition to subject-specific content, you will also explore the overlap between the two disciplines, for example in the areas of business organisation, finance and market regulation. The course provides a solid foundation for a career in either discipline, along with advanced writing, communication, research and presentation skills. You may opt for a three-year degree or you can take a wider range of Law and Business modules over four years. In order to obtain a qualifying law degree, you must choose the four-year course, but you do not need to make this decision until the spring term of your second year, allowing you flexibility to explore where your academic interests and career aspirations lie.
How will I learn?
For each module you’ll usually have two lectures per week, plus regular seminars which offer opportunities for legal problem solving and discussion of ethical or policy issues relating to the law. Staff also have regular advice and feedback hours in which you can discuss issues outside the seminar setting. We employ a range of innovative teaching methods, such as performance based learning, reflective journals and dramatised dissertations.
Our contextual approach to law means that we ask for consistent work and for your full commitment throughout the course. In return, we will give you all the support and advice needed to help you realise your full potential.
How will I be assessed?
We offer a variety of assessment methods, with emphasis placed on continuing assessment through class tests, essays and other formative and summative written work. Depending on module choice, you may be able to weight your degree towards either examinations or essays.
Can I study abroad?
Our LLB with Study Abroad in English and LLB with French or German Law courses have an integral year abroad, in which you will study approved law modules at one of our partner universities.
All students have the opportunity to apply for an intercalated year abroad at one of our partner universities. The Study Abroad Team based in the Office for Global Engagement offers support for these activities, and the Department’s dedicated Study Abroad Co-ordinator can provide more specific information and assistance.
