BCL Law with Philosophy

BCL Law with Philosophy

Undergraduate (Level 8 NFQ , Credits 240 )
Legal systems express and reflect the prevailing moral, political, social and economic philosophy of the state. Law and philosophy are, therefore, complementary fields of study. An understanding of law is fundamentally enhanced by a deeper knowledge of philosophical theory. This course offers you a highly respected degree in law combined with an enriched appreciation of its philosophical underpinnings.
