Between Law with criminology and Law with Business which one should I pick if I want to be a commercial lawyer?

Business makes more sense but does it even matter?

You can still pursue a career with either degree. Although if commercial law is what you really want to do and you think that's what interests you then the business option would make more sense. It would probably be easier to build up evidence of your interest in commercial law doing the business option.

The answer seems clear from the above statement. Take JSP literally. JSP is the reason I got several training contract interviews. I couldn't express my gratitude enough for JSP's help.

It doesn't matter hugely in itself, but if you already know you want to go into commercial law it's hard to advise you not to study Law with Business. Aside from the merits of the degree itself, you are likely to find more like-minded people on a Law with Business course.

I second Fmacca's point about listening to J-SP.

Law with Business is a no-brainer really.

Surely if you're actually interested in a career in commercial law then Law with Business is the degree which you'll find far, far, more interesting?

They both have the same Law modules but the business one has modules you'd take if you were doing a business degree... It seems too 'soft.'

Criminology is soft too but I think it's probably a better option compared to business?

Are you not actually interested in studying business though? I don't know what is really involved in terms of a business degree modules, but if you're interested in commerce, like you should be, then I imagine the business modules will be far more stimulating.

I'd imagine both are considered equally soft however.

Is there a way to spin the Law with Criminology degree to make it relevant for commercial law?
