Course summary

The LLB (Hons) Law (Criminology) is a qualifying law degree that is recognised by both the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Bar Standards Board (BSB). This course covers a distinctive knowledge base relating to criminology, the study of crime, deviance and the criminal justice system. If you’re hoping to become a solicitor or barrister specialising in criminal law, this is the ideal course for you. Criminology draws upon knowledge and perspectives from a range of disciplines, such as law, sociology, psychology and history. Following on from the foundations of legal knowledge (the subjects required for qualifying law degree-status), you will study Criminal Law as well as the core ‘pathway’ module of Urban Criminological Concepts, which introduces contemporary issues relevant to the field and is also unique to this course. The qualifying law degree is recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) for the purposes of satisfying the academic stage of training. In Year 1 you will study the same subjects as all three-year LLB course routes, developing a solid understanding of areas such as the English Legal System, Contract Law and Law and Society. A workshop-based skills module runs throughout this academic year, along with large group sessions and small workshops covering another three core modules. The focus is on practice-based learning, using authentic scenarios and skills exercises. You will continue to study the core foundations of legal knowledge in your second year, being introduced to Criminal Law as well as the core 'pathway' module of Urban Criminological Concepts. This will introduce you to contemporary issues relevant to the field and is unique to this award. In your final year, in addition to the final core module of Law of Trusts and Equitable Remedies, you will focus on specialist areas of criminology such as Criminal Justice, Crime Prevention and Law of Criminal Evidence, as well as the opportunity to take a dissertation. Many of our graduates continue their studies to train as solicitors and barristers with either the Legal Practice Course or the Bar Professional Training Course.
