Combining an intellectually challenging curriculum with an industry-focus, studying Law at Salford Business School gives you a grounding in the key concepts of any qualifying law degree and prepares you to embark on a high-level legal career.
Preparing students for career success is a priority at Salford Business School. By designing our modules around the current needs of employers, placing emphasis on the development of professional skills and including guest lectures, industry visits and work placement opportunities in our curriculum, we ensure our students graduate with the ability to put their academic knowledge into practice.
Extra-curricular activities, like mooting and trips, organised by our Law Society compliment your studies and enhance your experience throughout. Through initiatives like the CLOCK scheme, you’ll have chance to offer support and advice to people in the region; allowing you to not only practice what you’ve learned, but provide help for vulnerable people in the community.
This degree is also offered with a Foundation Year, visit www.salford.ac.uk/ug-courses/business-foundation-year for details.
There was a really warm and friendly feel about the University. The staff in the School have been so supportive and I cannot thank them enough. It’s not just chalk and talk at Salford. We can participate in the lectures and engage with the topics.
As well as placements in Law firms and taking part in the CLOCK initiative, we were given valuable opportunities to sit in chambers and put our questions to two judges. Salford really does fully prepare you for the working world ensuring you have the opportunity to gain as much industry experience as possible.Kirsty Ann Mayle, LLB Law
Our Law programme is accredited by both the Bar Standards Board and the Solicitors Regulation Authority, meaning your studies satisfy the requirements of the legal professional bodies for the award of a qualifying law degree. In your first year of study, business modules will be worked in alongside core law subjects to compliment your legal education and give you an essential understanding of the business landscape.
As the course progresses, you’ll have the chance to specialise by choosing modules that are relevant to your interests or the direction in which you would like to steer your career. The Professional Development module, along with the Professional Placement offered at the end of your second year, are excellent opportunities to prepare you for the world of work and boost your CV.
All of our BSc 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 School 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.
