What will I learn?

The Double Honours Degree in Economics and Law is a programme offered jointly by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and the Faculty of Law, leading to both the degrees of B.Soc.Sci (Hons) and LL.B (Hons).

Economics and Law are, in some areas, complementary disciplines. Increasingly, experts will use methodologies from the two disciplines. Scholars and practitioners of the two fields have been actively examining the places where they meet. For example, most Corporation Law subjects in top law schools now include economic analysis, and economists working on public policy, such as competition policy, require a working knowledge of the supporting legal infrastructure.

The programme includes the core of the Economics and Law degrees, as well as some other modules to allow students to explore beyond those areas.

The degree is aimed at outstanding students of both Economics and Law. It is an exacting course of study, for which students will need exceptional abilities in language, critical thinking and mathematics. Students who complete the course successfully will be awarded both LLB (Hons) and BSocSci (Hons).
