Designed to allow you to gain a qualifying law degree, as well as to explore crime and justice from a sociological perspective, Law with Criminology is a programme for people who wish to embark on a career in law and lift the lid on some of the most important and contentious issues facing society.
An industry-focus is placed at the heart of every programme delivered at Salford Business School. From initiatives like the CLOCK Scheme, that allow you to practice your legal knowledge by supporting vulnerable members of the community, to guest speakers and placement opportunities, Law with Criminology helps you to improve your practical skills as well as your academic knowledge.
Law with Criminology equips you with the tools you need for a successful career in the legal sector and an advanced knowledge of criminology. The programme is accredited by the Bar Standards Board and the Solicitors Regulation Authority. This means your studies will satisfy the requirements of the legal professional bodies for the award of a qualifying law degree with nine generic core law modules and one other specialist law module.
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
Like all programmes at Salford Business School, the modules delivered on this course are designed around the current needs of employers and professional bodies. With the opportunity for all students to complete a paid work placement between their second and third years, you will enter the world of work with an in-depth knowledge of the industry and of key business concepts.
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 criminology related modules.
A career-focused and industry-relevant approach is taken to the 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.
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.
