     Why study International Business and Management?
     Businesses are trading across borders to an ever-increasing extent. Few firms can afford to ignore the impact
     of these changes. Industry and commerce need people who can take advantage of the opportunities offered
     by globalisation as well as understanding the problems it can bring. Our International Business and
     Management degree sets the broad management disciplines within an international setting, in contrast to
     many other international business degrees that focus mainly on economics. You will emerge from the course
     with an understanding of:
        The driving forces of globalisation and the impact of trading across borders
        How business operates in other countries, and
        Strategies to adopt – and those to avoid – when doing business internationally

     Why study Business Studies and Law?
     Law has an increasing influence on many aspects of business. It governs, for example, contractual
     arrangements, employment protection, consumer protection and many aspects of accounting and finance. It
     is not enough, in many cases, to be aware of the legal provisions – you also need to understand how they
     apply in practice. Our Business Studies and Law degree:
         Gives equal emphasis to the acquisition of knowledge and skills in both business and law
         Helps you to develop a clear understanding of the interface between business activity and the legal
         framework within which it operates
         Provides good preparation for business careers that have a legal dimension, and
         Offers the possibility of partial exemption from the academic stage of training if you want to qualify
         as a solicitor or barrister

Why study Law?
Law is a dynamic subject that is centrally concerned with people and society. It affects almost everything we
do in our working and social lives – and new laws are being created all the time. People who study law not
only learn about what the legal principles and rules are and how they are applied, but also discuss what these
principles and rules should and should not try to achieve in order to make society function as efficiently and
fairly as possible. Our LLB qualifying Law degree:
    Provides exemption from the academic stage of training for those wishing to qualify as solicitors
    or barristers
    Enables you to study the seven foundations of legal knowledge, together with a wide range of other
    specialised law and law-related subjects, and
    Imparts a wide range of other skills – from critical thinking and communication skills to computer literacy –
    that are an excellent preparation for a wide range of careers

had the privilege of being part of the end of year Law Ball, as one of the
organisers and a winner of an ‘Outstanding Contribution’ award.”
“The modules I have most enjoyed studying have been International Law
and Law & Society. The latter was enjoyable as it was a topic which
allowed us to question the law, the implementation, and to what extent it
affects us as people. Rather than it being a topic of straightforward
application, this module enabled us to use our minds and to question what
is going on around us. International Law was a module which I found most
interesting, as I was intrigued by law making on a larger scale, and the
way in which the module was taught was again different from previous
modules, as it was not straightforward implementation of the law.”
