Course summary

This course offers the opportunity to understand the fundamentals of Law that govern all aspects of life.

It develops knowledge and understanding of the core schools of criminological thought, their historical and political foundations and practical application.

Course Overview

The course combines the study of Criminology where the student will look at crime, why people commit crime, what deters people from crime, policing of crime and the legal penal system, with a grounding of legal principles such as Contract, Public tort, Property, and Criminal Law.

The course offers students the opportunity to go into a variety of different professions in the legal justice system, for instance the operational policing module incorporates the Certificate in Knowledge of Policing (CKP) a level 3 qualification which currently an entry requirement for a number of Police forces in the UK.

It will also allow students wishing to go further with their legal professional studies with either the opportunity to study further with Chartered Institute of Legal Executives CILEX to become CILEX Lawyers or gain exemptions for the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL).

Career Opportunities

The course team has developed very close links with a number of professional organisations in both the public sector and legal services fields. This has allowed for close consultation on the development of course content and the availability of unique work experience opportunities.

For those students who wish to pursue a career in the Police force then the course works closely with South Wales Police and Dyfed Powys Police and has developed a volunteer work programme for the students to gain valuable experience and insight into the profession.

The course includes the option of the Operational Policing which incorporates the Certificate of Knowledge of Policing (CKP).

It has now become essential for several Police forces to have a CKP before applying.

This will put the students in a more advantageous position to gain employment in their chosen profession.

The course provides a good opportunity for students who would be interested in the Fast Track route into the Police.

The course works closely with other Public sector organisations, all of which have legal departments and the combination of both legal and public sector understanding and knowledge would be seen as a benefit to such a position.

The team has developed close relationships with local Law firms and developing work experience opportunities which would benefit the students if they chose to extend into further legal study.
