Law with Criminology allows you to gain a qualifying law degree but also caters for those who are interested in discovering more about crime and justice from a sociological perspective. It is an excellent degree if you wish to pursue a career in the field of criminal justice (for example, the police service, probation service, Crown Prosecution Service, prison service or other related fields). As well as acquiring specialised legal knowledge, studying law and criminology will also provide you with highly transferable skills that are valued by employers from many walks of life. Law graduates are skilled in oral and written communication, proficient in research and are able to solve problems in a structured and logical way. This course has a wide range of module choices so you can tailor your learning to your interests and learn from our specialist lecturers.. During year 1 of your LLB course, you will study six core modules, four law modules and two criminology modules. The majority of the law modules are common to law schools across the country as they are determined by professional requirements. Alongside these modules, at Salford we will ensure you have all the key skills you need to be successful in the core legal modules. Your criminology modules in year 1 set the scene, providing introductions to the criminal justice system and some key concepts in criminology. During year 2 you will continue your study of core legal modules and start to diversify in your study of criminology. In your final year at Salford Busienss School, you will study the final core legal modules and choose from our range of optional modules in both law and criminology. 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.
