Corporate Law is a rigorous but hugely rewarding degree that gives ambitious individuals the opportunity to combine an intellectually challenging curriculum with a commercial focus. As a Corporate Law student at Salford Business School, you’ll graduate with the skills and knowledge necessary for a career in law. Even if the legal sector isn’t for you, the curriculum will equip you for successful employment in a range of business-related positions.
As with all programmes at Salford Business School, the modules studied throughout the course are career-focused and industry-relevant. Undertaking a professional experience year, shadowing a barrister in a pupillage or getting involved with the School’s CLOCK scheme are all ways in which you’ll be able to put your studies into practice during your time as a Corporate Law student.
The programme is accredited by the Bar Standards Board and by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. This means your studies will meet the requirements of the legal professional bodies for the award of a qualifying law degree.
This degree is also offered with a Foundation Year, visit www.salford.ac.uk/ug-courses/business-foundation-year for details.
I’d heard about the unique way Salford Law at Salford Business School delivers its law courses, with a focus on real-world business acumen alongside the legal aspects of a qualifying law degree. The University of Salford provides opportunities to facilitate your development as a prospective lawyer and the international opportunities are fantastic and really give you the edge over other candidates when looking for employment.Salman Kotwal, LLB Law
The programme will begin by developing your understanding of key legal and business concepts. As the course progresses, your knowledge of corporate law and the ways in which it impacts business will be expanded. Optional modules give you the opportunity to specialise according to your personal interests or the direction you hope to take your career in.
Corporate Law is delivered by a team with a wealth of academic and industry experience. A combination of lectures, seminars, workshops and mooting exercises are used across the modules to give a varied experience and to further develop your interpersonal skills. The optional professional experience year is a great opportunity to put your studies into practice and gain valuable work experience.
All of our undergraduate students can apply for a one year professional placement, which takes place between your second and last years of study.
This is an excellent opportunity to take advantage of and over the last five years 90% of Salford Business undergraduates taking a one year placement secured a 2:1 or 1st class Honours degree.
We will help you find out about vacancies and make the right connections with high profile employers through regular events and presentations.
Please note that it may not be possible to deliver the full list of options every year as this will depend on factors such as how many students choose a particular option. Exact modules may also vary in order to keep content current. When accepting your offer of a place to study on this programme, you should be aware that not all optional modules will be running each year. Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme. Whilst the University tries to ensure that you are able to undertake your preferred options, it cannot guarantee this.
