BA Economics and Law
BA Economics and Law
The course is divided roughly equally between Law and Economics. You will study microeconomics; macroeconomics; basic mathematical techniques for economics; constitutional law; law of contract and administrative law. There is also a learning legal skills module designed for the novice law student, and a module on the analysis of economic and legal data.
In Law you will study the law of tort and EU law. In Economics you will extend and deepen your study of microeconomic and macroeconomic problems. In the study of Law and Economics there is a module in which economics is applied to the analysis of crime and punishment and to property law.
There is a compulsory module in criminal law and a special module in which economics is used to analyse the law of contract, tort and the civil justice process. You choose your other modules from a wide range of options and this allows you to specialise to some extent in either Law or Economics (at least one quarter of your course must be in each discipline).
