‚ÄčThis degree combines both law and business providing graduates with a skillset that allows them enter the professions in law, or the versatility and flexibility to enter the commercial and business world. Students will be equipped with the analytical and advocacy skills that arise from legal training, combined with the numeracy and financial literacy of a business degree. The modules are taught by experienced practitioners from commercial and legal practice.

This course provides a comprehensive grounding in the fundamental areas of law, including the legal system and the interaction of Irish and European Law. In addition, you will also engage with key areas of business such as marketing and management. Students on this course will have the opportunity to develop key transferable skills (including oral and written communication skills, analytical skills, enhanced numeracy, teamwork and research skills) which are increasingly attractive to potential employers.

Students may participate in our extra curricular activities such as FLAC and Mooting and Debating competitions.
