Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
This program provides qualifications in both economics and law. Studying law in conjunction with another discipline gives students the potential to take an interdisciplinary approach in both their studies and in future employment. Graduates will understand how law regulates and intersects with a wide range of economic systems. In conjunction with developing knowledge of legal frameworks, students will examine how modern economies operate and the interaction between law and regulation, and the economy. Students will develop analytical skills of both legal and policy-based economic issues - practical skills and knowledge that can be then adapted to a range of careers.
