Why choose this degree?
This option is designed for students who would like to combine their study of law with a strong background in accounting.
The BCL is a three-year degree in law combined with one other subject. While the BCL covers all the core modules of law, you cover less law than on the LLB (MH501), giving you more time to develop expertise in another subject. The main advantage is that it allows you to combine the study of law with study of another discipline.
For the three years of this programme you will study Law and Accounting in equal measure, making this degree particularly attractive if you are considering a career in these fields.
Flexibility and choice: BCL students who successfully complete the first year of the programme have the option of transferring into the second year of the LLB programme (MH501).
You can avail of exemptions (upon graduation) from CAP 1 examinations from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland, and equivalent examination papers from the ACCA, CIMA, and CPA professional accounting bodies.
