This programme is presented in collaboration with the Faculty of Law. The Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences awards the degree.
BCom (Law) does not by itself qualify you to practise as an attorney or advocate – to practise you require an LLB degree as well.
The three-year BCom (Law) programme does, however, provide a sound background in the economic sciences that prepares you for a career in the business sector or in commercial law, and it also lays a sound basis for a more advanced study of law.
In fact, students who hold the BCom (Law) degree will be exempted from the first two years of the four-year LLB programme. These students may join the LLB programme for its last two years, and can obtain the LLB degree after two years should they wish to pursue a career as a legal practitioner.
The BCom (Law) programme is compiled in such a way that you take law modules in each year of study and also non-law modules.
