Course summary

**Course overview**: This course includes a foundation year - ideal if you need additional preparation or if you don't have sufficient grades to join Year 1. This is a multi-disciplinary course that allows you to develop expertise in law and provides you with a strong introduction to core principles relating to crime, criminality and the criminal justice process. In Year 2 you have the option to study a work-based learning module, giving you the opportunity to experience working in a law or criminal justice-related setting.Law is for everyone. You don’t need to have studied law before, whatever your background, your contribution will be a valuable one. A law degree is a highly regarded qualification. You are trained to think, to question and to challenge. Many students study law to become a legal professional such as legal executive, solicitor or barrister, but a Teesside law degree opens up a wide range of professional roles for you, including the criminal justice field, within probation services, law enforcement and in the third charitable and voluntary sectors. You could also be successful in management, recruitment or human resources. Whether you’re starting a career, developing an existing one or changing direction, a law degree presents many opportunities to you.The law can, and does, change on a daily basis - that's what makes it such a fascinating and vibrant subject to study - so, your degree needs to be much more than a vehicle for learning facts. At the end of your course you’ll be a creative problem solver, and an effective researcher. You interpret, analyse and critique complex information. You’ll have highly developed written and oral communication skills and be able to formulate reasoned arguments and challenge decisions. You gain a valuable suite of skills and attributes, confidence, adaptability and resilience to succeed in your chosen career.Studying law at Teesside isn’t all about attending traditional lectures and sitting exams. We recognise that students learn in different ways and our innovative teaching and learning approaches and diverse assessment methods prepare you for the 21st century workplace.**Top three reasons to study this course at Teesside University**:1.
