Course Summary

Law DN600
Law DN600

This course allows you to obtain a highly respected degree in Irish law, whilst simultaneously acquiring a broad knowledge of economics. Certain areas of law (e.g. competition regulation and intellectual property) are heavily influenced by economic theory. BCL (Law with Economics) graduates are uniquely equipped to understand these regulatory frameworks in all of their conceptual complexity. On this degree, you’ll embark on a field of cross-disciplinary study which is intellectually very demanding, but also tremendously enriching and of immense practical importance.

Special Entry Recommendations: While maths is not an entry requirement for this course, it is strongly recommended that entrants to the economics programme should have at least a Grade of H6 in Leaving Certificate Maths (or equivalent).
