Management studies

Studying Law with Management at the University of 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. You will gain a solid foundation in the subjects at the heart of every qualifying law degree, and alongside this will acquire a strong business education. As a graduate with high level legal and business skills, if a career in the legal profession is not your ultimate goal, your employability will be strengthened by exposure to the key principles of business and entrepreneurship and you will be equipped for career success in any corporate, business, public service or third sector employment.

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 four other specialist law modules. You will also take five 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.

This course is available with a Professional Experience Year, giving you the opportunity to apply the skills, knowledge and understanding you have gained in the first two years of the course. If you choose to take the professional year option, you will not pay fees to the University and will earn a wage for the work that you do.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Law graduates tend to go into the legal industry, and they usually take similar routes. Jobs are competitive — often very competitive - but starting salaries are good and high fliers can earn serious money - starting on over £24k in London on average. Be aware though - some careers, especially as barristers, can take a while to get into, and the industry is changing as the Internet, automation and economic change all have an effect, If you want to qualify to practise law, you need to take a professional qualification — many law graduates then go on to law school. If you want to go into work, then a lot of law graduates take trainee or paralegal roles and some do leave the law altogether, often for jobs in management, finance and the police force. A small proportion of law graduates also move into another field for further study. Management, accountancy and teaching are all popular for these career changers, so if you do take a law degree and decide it’s not for you, there are options.
