Course summary

**Why study this course?**On our joint honours Criminology and Law BSc degree, you’ll learn about British and European Union law, as well as the methodological and theoretical tools that criminological practitioners use. This is an ideal degree for those looking to work in a range of roles within the criminal justice system or in sectors where a broad knowledge of the law is useful. In the 2020 National Student Survey, 92% of our law students said we'd given them good learning opportunities, plus 97% said they had access to course-specific facilities, equipment and other resources when they needed it.**More about this course**Crime continues to be a central focus of public concern and political debate, particularly in global cities such as London. This specialist course will delve into the causes and effects of crime and criminal behaviour. It will also explore the criminal justice system, including the police, judiciary and prisons, examining the concept of justice and sentencing. The course is delivered through a range of teaching methods including formal lectures, seminars, workshops, project-based research activity and individual tutorials. There’s an emphasis on the link between teaching, practice and research. A number of staff in our criminology and law subject areas are active researchers and their research findings often provide the basis for teaching on the course. Lecturers have published articles on a range of topics including gang culture, international organised crime, cybercrime, child protection and the probation service.You’ll have access to our very own mock courtroom, where you’ll get a feel for a legal environment and find out how courtrooms across the country are run. We’ll also provide you with detailed knowledge and understanding of legal rules and their contexts, and support you in developing general skills such as independent research, critical judgement, debating, communication and teamwork. These skills will prepare you for the world of work and a range of careers.Our excellent London location means that MPs, visiting professors, successful graduates and representatives from legal organisations are often guest speakers at London Met. Our location also provides easy access to London's many legal resources, as well as a range of opportunities for voluntary work and work placement opportunities.This is not a qualifying law degree for training for the legal professions. Please see our Law LLB, Commercial Law LLB or Law (with International Relations) LLB course if you’re interested in a qualifying law degree.
