Law at Salford Business School combines the intellectual rigor of a qualifying law degree with the real-world focus and commercial awareness that barristers and solicitors seek when recruiting new trainees.
This course is designed to provide you with a solid foundation in the subjects at the heart of every qualifying law degree. During the first year of your LLB course, you will study six core modules. The majority of these modules are common to law schools across the country as they are determined by professional requirements. At Salford, we will ensure you have all the key skills you need to be successful in the core legal modules as well as providing a broader context for your studies with core commercial and business modules. Alongside the traditional core legal topics, during year 2 you will have the opportunity to choose from our range of optional modules. This will enable you to start developing your specialisms and choose from legal topics that particularly appeal to you. In your final year you will continue to tailor your studies to your particular interests and learn from our specialist lecturers.
You will gain a degree to fit you for a career in Law but equally, if this is not your ultimate goal then, like all law graduates, you will be very well equipped for career success in any corporate, business, public service or third sector employment and in high demand from employers.
The programme also offers a wide range of learning outside the classroom including an exciting series of guest lectures and industry visits. There is a dynamic Law Society (run by students on the Law programmes) which organises extra-curricular activities – including Mooting, law debates and trips - as well as social events and competitions that will enhance your student experience and help you make new friends and connections
The programme is accredited by the Bar Standards Board and by the Solicitors Regulation authority. To satisfy the requirements of the legal professional bodies for the award of a qualifying law degree you will take nine generic core law modules, and one other specialist law module. You will also take three business related modules.
This degree is also offered with a Foundation Year, visit www.salford.ac.uk/ug-courses/business-foundation-year for details.
Studying Law at the University of Salford gives you a solid grounding in:
- The foundation subjects at the heart of every qualifying law degree
- Specialist studies in some key commercial and business law subjects
- Core modules focussed on the principles of business and entrepreneurship.
The course normally runs over three academic years, or four years if you decide to take a professional placement.
Each academic year is divided into two semesters, during which you will study three modules worth 20 credits each, making a total of six modules studied each year worth 120 credits. On graduation you will have taken eighteen modules altogether, which makes up the 360 credits required for an honours degree.
If you take a professional placement year between your second and third years, you will accumulate a further 60 credits.
To satisfy the requirements of the legal professional bodies for the award of a qualifying law degree you will take nine generic core law modules, and one other specialist law module. In years two and three you will have the opportunity to select an option from a range of specialist law, business and management modules.
If, at the end of your first year, you wish to change to another course, and as long as you have successfully completed your year 1 studies, you can transfer to another Law or Business with Law course at the start of your second year.
