Law (Media and Digital Industries) is a degree that combines academically rigorous law modules with a focus on the fast-moving media and digital industries. Accredited by the Bar Standards Board and the Solicitors Regulation Authority, the programme is a qualifying law degree with the added benefit of digital and media-related modules.
You will graduate with a range of legal and business skills that make you a fantastic candidate for careers both inside and outside of the legal sector. As the digital industry booms internationally and the world of media continues to evolve, individuals with transferrable professional skills and academic knowledge will be highly sought after by employers.
As with all courses at Salford Business School, you will have the opportunity to take part in a Professional Experience Year after your second year of study. During your time working with an organisation, you’ll not only boost your CV and put your knowledge into practice, but earn a wage for your work.
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
In the first year of the programme, you’ll study a number of modules aimed at introducing Law as an area of academic study and professional practice. Throughout the remainder of the course, these key concepts are expanded upon and combined with media and digital business related modules.
A career-focused and industry-relevant approach is taken to the Law (Media and Digital Industries) curriculum, meaning that the syllabus is designed to reflect the current needs of employers and encourage the development of professional skills.
Initiatives like the CLOCK Scheme, which gives you the chance to use your knowledge of law to assist the vulnerable, and the inclusion of guest speakers and industry visits all aim to help you to translate what you learn in the lecture theatre into real-world organisational scenarios.
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.
