The Department of Law is an integral unit of the Division of Commerce, its central focus being the building of sound deductive reasoning and analysis and the application of such skills to specialized areas of Law.
We live in a society in which our daily lives are touched by legal rules and regulations which can be complex in nature and dynamic in pace. The study of law responds to this anomaly by focusing on rules, regulations and principles which comprise our legal system and which have the effect of limiting or otherwise restricting conduct.
As a subject area, law remains pivotal as a buttress to other studies in the Division of Commerce by providing an understanding of the legal frame-work within which we all operate. It combines well with other majors offered at the BCC and is a stepping-stone to any area of work or study including a profession as a practicing Attorney-at-Law.
