LLB (Hons) Law (International)
Combining an intellectually challenging curriculum with an industry focus, the University of Salford LLB delivered at BUB 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. Modules are designed around the current needs of employers and the legal profession. We also place great emphasis on the development of your professional skills; you will have the opportunity to practise your learning during a year’s optional 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.
• Earn a degree accredited by the Bar Standards Board & the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
• Develop the essential skills and knowledge for a legal career.
• Benefit from opportunities to shadow practising legal professionals.
• Gain real, hands-on experience on a work placement to develop the skills employers value.
Our Law programme is recognised by both the Bar Standards Board and the Solicitors Regulation Authority, meaning your studies satisfy the requirements of the legal professional bodies for the award of a qualifying law degree. In your first year of study, business modules will be taught alongside core law subjects to complement your legal education and give you an essential understanding of the business landscape.
As the course progresses, you will have the chance to specialise by choosing modules that are relevant to your interests or the direction in which you would like to steer your career. The Professional Development module, along with the Professional Placement offered at the end of the third year, are excellent opportunities to prepare you for the world of work and boost your CV. You will also have access to a wide number of out of the classroom activities to develop your real world skills.
YEAR 1 - FOUNDATION YEAR
The Foundation Year has been designed to bridge the gap between High School and effective Honours Degree Study. The modules focus on the development of key skills, including studying independently and collaboratively, critical thinking, academic and professional writing and quantitative techniques. A key focus of the Foundation Year is a collaborative project, where students will work together to develop solutions to real-world problems.
