Overview

Commercial lawyers are best equipped to advise their clients if they have a strong understanding of financial markets. The LLB Law with Finance provides you with thorough knowledge of how law works, both domestically and internationally, as well as how finance shapes leadership, strategy and planning within organisations.

You will cover all of the essential foundations of legal knowledge, and will be able to further specialise your curriculum in subjects including international trade law, banking law, company law and commercial contract law. The course provides access to Bloomberg and you will use real-time financial data to apply theory to practice and develop your capacity to analyse financial information. You will have the opportunity to forecast share prices, build portfolios of assets and explore the reasons behind market booms and crashes.

At Essex we don’t just prepare you to become an outstanding legal or business professional. We stimulate your desire to pursue justice and equip you with the skills and knowledge to become an agent for change, whatever career path you choose.

From the start of your course, we challenge you to think deeply, broadly and strategically about career paths. Over the first two years, alongside law subjects, you will take a career management module designed to help you identify personal strengths and goals, understand what employers are looking for and enhance your employability profile.

We also hold an annual law fair, attended by law firms and vocational qualification providers.
