Combining Two Passions Into One Successful Career: Legal Studies in Business

Interested in a career that intersects law and business, but haven’t yet committed to finishing your degree? If you’ve earned at least 45 credits from college-level courses, Peirce College has the perfect program for working adults just like you! Our degree completion program is a convenient, flexible option that allows you to earn a bachelor’s degree in Legal Studies in Business leading you into the career you’ve always wanted.

A bachelor’s degree in Legal Studies in Business prepares you for a successful career in business law with intellectual tools and practical skills like analytics, problem solving, oral communication, legal and business research and more by taking courses such as business law, legal research and writing, business litigation, corporations, human resource management, ethical leadership and contract law.

This Legal Studies in Business program will prepare you for a variety of roles that focus on the legal side of business, such as regulation, compliance, contacts, research analytics, lobbying and corporate practice. The program also provides a strong foundation for those who choose to pursue a career as an attorney.

In alignment with our dedication to this program, Peirce College has hosted the Mid-Atlantic Academy of Legal Studies in Business Conference three times in the last ten years. Peirce College Professor Cynthia Gentile served as Conference Chair of the event. This year, the two-day conference featured presentations by faculty from institutions throughout the region. Topics included Ethics, Freedom of Speech, Crowdfunding, an analysis of Federal Court decisions in law and business and the #MeToo movement.

The variety of these subjects demonstrates how the law and all aspects of business intersect in a meaningful and challenging way. This, of course, has a significant impact on everyday life. The connection between the law and the business world has never been more complex.

Because of this complexity, it has never been a better time than now to get involved in this career field and to take hold of your future by earning your Bachelor of Science in Legal Studies in Business.
