The accounting and legal professions are increasingly involved in multidisciplinary practices. Accountants need an understanding of the law, while commercial lawyers often operate in accounting and financial environments. The integration of key roles within these functional areas requires the interdisciplinary knowledge and related skills that was previously the domain of two distinct professions.
This four-year honours degree programme reflects these workplace developments and will provide you with an in-depth critical understanding of the complementary areas of accounting and law. You will gain a thorough grounding in the fundamental theories, concepts, principles and practices essential to the pursuit of a fulfilling and rewarding career in the area of accounting and/or the legal profession.
