Bachelor of Commerce in Law for 2017

Why study Bachelor of Commerce in Law?

There is a growing need for multi-dimensional graduates with the ability to participate in an increasingly complex and dynamic local and global economy. The dual focus on commerce and law allows graduates to pursue a career in business management, whilst the focus on governance and compliance ensures ethical business practices will be followed. Armed with a firm grasp of sound business skills, graduates who want to pursue a career in law, can complete a further law qualification.

This qualification aims to equip learners with a well-rounded, broad education to produce graduates equipped with the knowledge base, theory and methodology of commerce and the general rules of law. Graduates will be familiar with the relationship between various aspects of commerce and the general rules of law.

Graduates of this qualification will also hold in high regard their duty to contribute meaningfully to the development of the local and global society and economy. The qualification will equip the learner with specialised knowledge in certain law subjects, whilst the commerce subjects will allow the learner the ability to develop a specialisation in tax, accounting or governance and compliance.

This qualification will also impart general skills and competencies in numeracy, literacy and articulation. The qualification is an ideal first degree grounding for a variety of careers in law, business and government. It furthermore enables graduates to articulate to the two year advanced Bachelor of Laws qualification, leading to a deeper understanding of the nature and function of, and an ability to apply the law, in the regulation of commercial activity.

This programme is offered and certified by Monash South Africa. Successful completion of this programme leads to a Monash South Africa qualification.
