Law

Definition

It’s designed to give students a broad background in law and focuses specifically on economics and management sciences.

Having a degree in BCom Law complements an LLB degree, because it creates a broader perspective on topics such as taxation and commercial law. The goal of completing a BCom Law degree is usually to study an LLB degree afterwards, in order to become a lawyer or advocate.

Career description

Having a BCom Law degree only means you may not practice as an attorney or an advocate. It will be advantageous when you follow through with an LLB Law degree.

A person with this background can work in an insurance company, a merchant bank or any other financial institution.
