Health and safety law is designed to protect the health, safety and welfare of the general public and defined sectors such as employees; no matter what industry you work in, there will be health and safety regulations to adhere to.
During the programme, you will evaluate the legislation and case law relating to health, safety and the environment. You will also have the opportunity to assess the current position of court remedies and sanctions in case of failure to comply with legal provisions.
A particular focus of the programme is the law of industry and its impact on many stakeholders. You will look at the legal duties of employers and others under health and safety law and industrial law and consider some of the crucial legal issues in health and safety law and industrial law, e.g. protection of whistle blowers, risks associated with specific hazards and hazardous activities.
The LLM programme also aims to equip participants with the necessary knowledge which will enable them to represent parties effectively before the courts or when pursuing or responding to an application before an Employment Tribunal.
You will be immersed in the more complex areas of business and commercial law looking at real-world applications that are not commonly available to students of traditional Law Schools. In the final part of the programme you will choose, as an alternative to a dissertation, either a live project, an internship or a placement, supported in each case by a research report.
The block delivery of the modules allows you flexibility in arranging your programme of study and means that you concentrate on one subject area at a time in order to gain maximum knowledge and understanding.
The programme is block delivered and there are several entry points throughout the year. Students will take the modules below in a sequence dependent on their start date.
The course is delivered in four blocks of intensive study periods. For each block, you study a single module for a 6-week period. Face-to-face teaching is delivered on campus for 6 hours each week. In addition, you will attend the taught element of the Industry Collaboration Project each Wednesday afternoon during the 6-week blocks. During this period, you will also undertake independent study in your own time with online support through the University’s virtual learning environment, Blackboard.
Part time students study alternate modules (one module on, one module off) to complete their degree in two years.
SEMESTER 3Industry Collaboration Project (ICP)
This module accounts for the final 60 credits of your degree and gives you the opportunity to examine an issue that is important to an organisation. The Industry Collaboration Project offers four different options: a Work Placement, a three month Internship, the applied Dissertation and, from September 2019, the Entrepreneurship path. You will be allocated a supervisor to mentor you through your chosen project and receive support wherever necessary from the Salford Business School Employability Team. For all options students are encouraged to address a real organisational issue, and to disseminate their work to a wider audience, meaning that you can create real impact through your Industry Collaboration Project.
Through this option, along with applying your theoretical knowledge from the taught elements of the programme, you will develop the transferable skills and qualities required for entrepreneurial behaviour and work on your own innovative business idea. You will reflect on business opportunities, challenges and strategies with the aim of establishing a new businesses, or incorporating entrepreneurial thinking into the management of an existing organisation. The three month Entrepreneurship path will be assessed through the development of an Initial Business Proposal and an 8,500 word Comprehensive Business Proposal accompanied by a 30 minute presentation.
