Business Law and Economics - taught in London at University of Liverpool in London

The programme has been established in response to growing demands from national and international employers for multidisciplinary experts in compliance, governance, competition and regulatory issues. During the programme, students will work on analysing and solving the economic and legal problems which many organisations encounter from increasing global competition and the ever-increasing demands from UK legislation and the EU. Students will also examine legal and managerial issues as well as the underlying economic theories behind the legal strategies of firms. Students on the programme will experience a progressive, internationally oriented work method, which consists of a combination of law and management tools. Upon graduation, students will be able to solve problems in the areas of law and economics, both independently and with others, while taking societal considerations into account; apply legal and economic knowledge, theories and models for the testing or the development of policies of firms, organizations, or governmental bodies; and be able to professionally collaborate with others in interdisciplinary teams and contribute to combining and generating new knowledge within the team.
