The University of Salford is launching a new law school offering undergraduate courses.
The law school, which will open in September 2007, will be housed in a brand new building next to the Clifford Whitworth Library and will be headed by Professor Alistair Alcock. The school will build on its distant learning programme and plans to add courses focusing on construction and sports law within the next year.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Michael Harloe said in a statement: Demand for law degrees remains very buoyant and up until now we have not been able to benefit from this.
He added: I would like to congratulate all those who have contributed to this outcome, especially Professor Chris Bryant, who has chaired the law school steering committee, and Dr Judith Ross, who has led the development of our new undergraduate degree.
The law school is expected to take on around 100 undergraduate students in its first year.
