Course summary

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 on this Law degree. Modules are designed around the current and future needs of employers and the legal profession; in particular, we have built into your learning an understanding of how changing technology and artificial intelligence is influencing the law. We also place great emphasis on the development of your professional skills; you will have the opportunity to shadow working lawyers and judges, practise your learning during a year’s work placement and develop your client care skills by helping people looking for support from our legal advice schemes. In this way, you learn to put your academic knowledge into practice. Extra-curricular activities, like mooting and trips, are organised by our student-led Law Society, complementing your studies and enhancing your experience throughout. Through initiatives like the CLOCK scheme (in partnership with Salford Citizens Advice), you’ll have the chance to offer support to people with welfare benefits appeals in the region, allowing you to not only practise what you’ve learned, but provide help for vulnerable people in the community. “The pro bono and extracurricular activities have been second to none as the University has developed training programs and schemes designed to test students in a real world setting while simultaneously providing legal support to those who need it in our society.” Shaun Cooper, Law student. You can enhance your career options with a year-long work 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.

Assessment method

Assessments are not just about exams. We use different assessment techniques in different modules and wherever possible these will reflect the types of work you will do in the ‘real world’ for example, portfolio work, multiple choice questions, court visit reports and problem questions. The weighting between exams and coursework varies between modules and years, however exams do still play an important role.
