The differences between a BCom in Law and an LLB


Always dreamed of becoming a lawyer? You’re not alone there. Thanks to shows like Suits and Law and Order, we’ve all considered a career spent in the courtroom. Although it’s not entirely realistic, being a lawyer is certainly as rewarding as they make it out to be on TV. Believe it or not, there’s more than one way that you can achieve your goal of making law your bread and butter. Two of these ways are studying an IIE BCom in Law or an LLB degree. 

The difference between these two different law degree options can be a little confusing but we’re here to set the record straight. At The IIE’s Varsity College, we like to keep you in the loop. We do this through sharing industry-relevant articles that might be of interest to you. 



Which do you choose? 

It all depends on you and your dreams at the end of the day. Many tend to go for the BCom Law as it offers a greater degree of flexibility in case you change your mind later on. This often happens and many lawyers decide that they’d like to start a business or pursue something a little different. With a degree that’s a bit more open-ended, you’ll enjoy the peace of mind and freedom that comes with knowing you could change lanes if and when you wanted to. However, if you feel like you were born to be a lawyer, choosing an LLB certainly won’t harm you or your future. 

The career you’ve always wanted is just an IIE qualification away 

At The IIE’s Varsity College we know you have big dreams. It’s why you can choose from a range of IIE qualifications to help you achieve the career of your dreams. For more information on the IIE Bachelor of Commerce Law, please click here for a full breakdown.
