hello sis of Islam,

if you like business then go with the joint honour but if i were you i would go for Law because it is straight to the point i believe 3 yrs 

it would have been better if it was with a language aka Arabic<-- i would prefer this because do you need business in the field of law, well in some parts relating to it yes but just decide on the end point would you like to be a lawyer for business sector???

hi, ...well, it depends on your choices and career ambitions to be honest

-if you want to leave your options open,love business and law,  then do joints hons

-if you love pure law and want to straightaway get into the field of Law in the future, then do law as single hons

Thank you....

Well, I really, really am interested in Pure law. That was initially the direction to go in. ...buttttt business sounds interesting to, and like you guys said, I would like to keep my options open.. But I'm soooooo stuck. And don't worry about telling me what to do. I don't mind; i just need the arguments so i can balance them out and then decide.

Either one is fine (as if you want to be a barrister or solicitor they don't particularly discriminate against degree types). Also, depends on what you want to do further on. If you want to be a barrister or solicitor, either is fine as long as you have the seven key modules in the law degree which are Contract Law, Public Law, Tort Law, Criminal Law, Land Law, Law of the European Union/EU Law and Trusts Law. If it doesn't have that then you'll need to do the GDL after your three/four years. That, or make sure it's an LLB you're doing. If you have no desire to pursue a Law degree after university, then Law and Business is the way to go. But as  aliimz said, a degree with a language (I believe Oxford Brookes do Law and Arabic, as well as SOAS, but it isn't qualifying) would be much better. 

TL;DR - If you wanna be a lawyer, no (unless it's qualifying), if you want to be anything else then go for it.
