Details Details
  • Law is taken jointly with Accounting for the three years of the programme.
  • Students acquire a thorough grounding in both core law subjects and key financial and accounting skills.
  • Learn how to compile, analyse, interpret and communicate essential information about the operations of a business – whether that business be a small firm, a publicly traded corporation or an NGO (non-governmental organisation), while studying technical accounting skills, financial analysis and the measurement of performance in business.
  • Enhance employability by developing your facilities for argument, reasoning and for the analysis of complicated ideas.

Why choose this degree?

  • This option is designed for students who would like to combine their study of law with a strong background in accounting.
  • The BCL is a three-year degree in law combined with one other subject. While the BCL covers all the core modules of law, you cover less law than on the LLB (MH501), giving you more time to develop expertise in another subject. The main advantage is that it allows you to combine the study of law with study of another discipline.
  • For the three years of this programme you will study Law and Accounting in equal measure, making this degree particularly attractive if you are considering a career in these fields.
  • Flexibility and choice: BCL students who successfully complete the first year of the programme have the option of transferring into the second year of the LLB programme (MH501).
  • You can avail of exemptions (upon graduation) from CAP 1 examinations from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland, and equivalent examination papers from the ACCA, CIMA, and CPA professional accounting bodies.
  • Accredited law degree by the Honorable Society of King’s Inns.
