The first ever cohort of students from Salford Law School have gained a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree after completing its new undergraduate course.

Forty-seven undergraduates graduated from the law school, which was only established thee years ago.

Keeley Liddell, who was one of the students to graduate with a 2:1 on Friday (16 July), had a baby in her final year but was still able to complete her studies.

“The staff were fantastic,” she said. “Having a baby meant there were lots of pressures on my time, but the tutors were very understanding.”

Liddell is now going on to study Legal Practice Course (LPC) in a bid to achieve her dream of becoming a lawyer.

At the ceremony an honorary degree was awarded to Lady Brenda Hale, the UK’s most senior female law lord who gave her name to the School’s £10m building which opened in 2007.
