As a law graduate with specialist digital knowledge and skills, you will be equipped for career success in modern professional practice or business.
Studying Law at Salford 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.
If a career in the legal profession is not your ultimate goal then, like all law graduates, you will still be in high demand from employers across business and other sectors. Your employability will be further strengthened by exposure to the key principles of business and entrepreneurship.
As a graduate with high level legal and business skills you will be equipped for career success in any corporate, business, public service or third sector employment.
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 digital and media 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 professionalplacement.
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 four other specialist law modules. You will also take five business/digital related modules.
