Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Howard Newby: “We are excited to be offering these opportunities at our new London campus in the heart of the City”
A landmark higher education partnership between the privately owned University of Law (ULaw) and the University of Liverpool has been welcomed by The Rt. Hon David Willetts MP, Minister of State for Universities and Science.
The universities will develop a strategic partnership, the first major collaboration of its kind between two UK universities, to offer joint and dual programmes in Law with Business and Management education that harnesses the academic strengths and professional focus of both institutions.
The partnership will initially launch two new undergraduate degrees and a postgraduate programme from September 2015, and, as the collaboration develops, other innovative programmes designed to appeal to undergraduates, postgraduates and executives.
The dual undergraduate degree programmes will offer Law with Business and Law with Accounting and graduates, which will receive degree awards from both ULaw and the University of Liverpool.
The degree programmes combine professional legal skills offered by ULaw with key business skills from the Liverpool’s Management School.
Mr Willetts said: “This Government’s reforms were intended to promote new forms of delivering Higher Education, and I welcome this collaboration between The University of Law and the University of Liverpool as a product of those reforms.
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Howard Newby, said: “We are continually developing innovative courses to meet the needs of a wide range of students and we hope this partnership will enable them to receive an enviable professional education from two renowned institutions.
“Whilst we will continue to offer our popular suite of academically-focused Law degrees at our Liverpool campus, we are excited to be offering these opportunities at our new London campus in the heart of the City.”
John Latham, President and CEO at The University of Law, said: “This is the first time that we have combined undergraduate provision with business and accountancy qualifications and we are excited to be taking this step in partnership with Liverpool.
“These business-focused dual degrees demonstrate our ability to invest in innovative programmes, which respond to the needs of employers and provide an attractive option for career-minded students, allowing them to gain skills in leading professional disciplines.
“This innovative collaboration marks the first major partnership between a public Russell Group university and a private UK university.”
The LL.B/BA Law with Business will be particularly relevant to students wishing to pursue a career in company and commercial law and will develop business skills to enhance commercial awareness for those aspiring to rise to management positions.
The LL.B/BA Law with Accounting offers a significant level of exemption from professional accountancy examinations and will enable students to pursue a career in either the legal industry or in finance and accountancy.
In Years 1 and 2 of the three-year programmes students will study Law in a professional context at ULaw’s London Bloomsbury or Manchester centres. In the final year, Liverpool Management School will teach the business and accounting modules at either the University’s London campus in Finsbury Square or at the main campus in Liverpool.
More information about the LL.B/BA (Hons) Law with Business and Law with Accounting programmes will be available soon at www.law.ac.uk/undergraduate.
