Driven to pursue a career in law, but also have an interest in business and management? We have the solution.

Explore how the law affects and operates in the world of business. And enjoy the freedom to study the areas that interest you most, whether that's contract law, intellectual property, management of human resources or something else.

There's no better place to study these two subjects than London. The city is a business hub and a centre for legal expertise and innovation. You'll graduate with legal and business insights that will prove invaluable whether you continue your studies or kickstart your career.

You'll study a combination of modules from both the School of Law and the School of Business and Management. This includes compulsory modules, so you meet Bar Council and Law Society requirements.

You'll learn about legal issues in management and pick from optional business modules. At the same time, we'll help you build a foundation in law, looking at Acts of Parliament and EU legislation while mastering the skills you need to understand legal documents.

Tell us where you want to go, and we'll help you get there. We partner with multinational companies such as PwC and connect you with law experts at major City firms such as Reed Smith.

I chose Law because I aspire to build a legal career for myself after having completed numerous legal work experiences at sixth form. However, business is also a great passion of mine and I hope to launch my own brand one day which is why I saw it as essential to build managerial and business skills from an early stage. Queen Mary has been the perfect place for me to do just that. Here, I am able to receive lots of support from staff who are always ready and available to schedule a meeting if you need support outside lectures and classes.

Teaching and learning

First year students studying the LLB in Law with Business receive approximately 12 hours of contact time per week. For each module there is usually a two-hour lecture supplemented by a one-hour weekly or fortnightly small group tutorial.

For every hour spent in class, you’ll complete a further two to three hours of independent study. This time is spent reading, preparing for formal study sessions, working on projects and revising for exams.

A new Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE) was introduced in September 2021. Anyone wishing to qualify as a solicitor is likely to have to take this centrally assessed SQE. Queen Mary is dedicated to ensuring that students are equipped with the experience and skills required to undertake the SQE and any other post LLB bar qualification internationally.


Assessment typically includes written exams, oral presentations, midterm essays and coursework.

In the final year of all our law programmes, students have the option to research and write a dissertation on a legal topic in place of a taught module.
