Law with Professional Placement

90% of students on the Law with professional year programme at Salford Business School were satisfied with their experience according to Unistats. 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. If a career in the legal profession is not your ultimate goal then you will be well equipped for career success in any corporate, business, public service or third sector employment and in high demand from employers. 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. 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 Through the Study Abroad programme, you could choose to spend your second year studying on an international exchange with one of our global partner institutions in Europe, the US or the rest of the world. You can enhance your career options with a year-long industrial placement giving you the opportunity to apply the skills, knowledge and understanding you have gained in the first two years of the course. You will work with an employer which could be a local, national or international organisation. During this year, you will not pay fees to the University and will earn a wage for the work that you do. There are different entry requirements and course codes for the Professional Experience Year option. This degree is also offered with a Foundation Year.
