The creative sector is one of the fastest-growing, most dynamic industries in the world bringing with it a range of legal implications. This double degree combination allows students to study a traditional creative discipline such as creative writing, music, theatre, graphic design or visual arts alongside studies in law. Many lawyers find that knowledge of the arts and media is extremely useful in their practice. From something as simple as pursuing two seemingly different passions to a career defending and promoting free press and artistic expression, this double degree offers many exciting career opportunities.
