Course summary

Tackle social injustice and inequality to bring about positive societal change through legal and criminological approaches.In a rapidly changing globalised world, inequality, injustice and discrimination are rife. On this course, you'll engage with issues of social justice through a distinctive approach combining law, policy and the study of the social construction of crime. You'll work collaboratively to analyse real-world problems, as well as undertake individual legal research, all while drawing on the expertise of criminologists and world-leading legal researchers. Our graduates are skilled written and oral communicators, coordinators and team players. You'll be well-placed to contribute to society as a creative, ethical and robust thinker and problem-solver within a range of roles in the social and criminal justice system, in the wider legal profession and beyond.AccreditationThis degree is a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD)*, accredited by the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors Regulation Authority.*The Solicitors Regulation Authority is making changes to the system of qualification in England and Wales. These may affect the status of 'Qualifying Law Degrees' for all Law Schools.Throughout the course, you'll learn about inequalities and discrimination in society and the criminal justice system, and discuss and evaluate how injustices can be challenged. You'll choose from a range of modules across Sociology, Law and Social Policy, drawing on expertise from each subject to enhance your knowledge and skills. You may also have the opportunity to gain valuable practical experience of the impact of law and criminology on particular sectors of society.In your final year you'll apply your skills to a major group project. You'll collaborate with individuals within criminal justice institutions on a legal and criminological issue of your choice. Together, you will develop a means of effectively communicating the critical aspects of that issue to a wider and more diverse audience.
