A commitment to specialisation
If you are curious about the organisation of social life and the structure of the economic system; you have analytical and reasoning skills and are interested both in the world of law and business, then the BA in Law + Specialist Diploma in Economics will provide you with a solid legal training and an in-depth knowledge of economics and business.
The perfect complement to the BA in Law
A slightly heavier workload (48 ECTS credits distributed through the four years of the Bachelor’s in Law) will provide you with specialist knowledge of an area which is very different from law but closely linked to the world of economics and business. The Specialist Diploma in Economics is complementary and optional. This combination is popular with students and highly demanded by companies, which look for graduates with a legal-economics background.
A degree structured in three modules
- Economic Environment: it covers basic and applied economics, interpreting the conditions surrounding the business.
- Management techniques: it develops the fundamentals of accounting acquired in the Bachelor’s degree in Law and equips students to analyse financial operations and the feasibility of investments.
- Business Management: it focuses on firms and their management, introducing students to the subsystems that make up businesses and their departments.
And all this, how?
- Taught sessions based on practice focused theoretical lectures.
- A number of core subjects, compulsory and elective subject areas. It also includes specific subjects in the area of Specialisation in Economics.
- With lectures taught in English, which is key to rounding off your legal training.
- Participation in workshops and role plays on how to solve potential conflicts and those already existing.
- Working through case studies that will bring to the classroom the interactions and problems facing today’s societies.
- Performing successfully in an increasingly international context where information and communication technologies play a major role.
- You can also become specialised in one of the three pathways into which Law is divided:
-Patrimonial and Business Law
-Techniques of information and communication Law
Students applying for Specialist Diploma in Economics are required to have passed the modern language requirement before finishing the bachelor´s degree: B2 level in English, French or German.
Choose the destination, the university and get your career off the ground
In the first semester in your fourth year of study you will have the opportunity to go to a foreign university as part of the Erasmus programme, which will allow you to know other cultures and continue with your Law studies learning other countries' legislations.
Your guide through your learning experience
You will have tutorials starting from 1st year. Tutors will assess students as groups or individually, focusing on academic, personal and/or job aspects.
In addition to the specific tutorials, the University has a general coordination body: the University Guidance Service (SOU). Specifically, the Faculty of Law has a Careers Guidance Service (SOP) that organises, coordinates and promotes activities related to students’ professional future (practical workshops, information sessions on career opportunities in their degree, presentations by companies and law firms...). In addition, our Advisory Programme will give you the opportunity to take part in working sessions with leading professionals from outside the University of Deusto, who will help you to decide on your career choice.
