Course summary

This distinctive degree will expand your worldview and broaden your career prospects.

Course description

  • We equip you with all the key skills required to succeed in the legal sector – including drafting, advocacy, interviewing and negotiation. In addition to these core legal skills we will be engaging with skills that relate to entrepreneurship, creative and problem solving skills as well as developing your business acumen.
  • Our tuition reaches the highest professional standards: this is a qualifying law degree, meeting criteria set by the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors Regulation Authority, which puts you on the path to a career as a solicitor or barrister.
  • You’ll go behind the headlines to explore how crime can be measured and reduced as well as the challenges of convicting serious offenders.
  • There are exciting opportunities for you to benefit from work placements and professional mentoring.
  • An extensive programme of fieldtrips are included in your course fee, with the chance to visit London, The Hague and Dublin.
  • Through our new Student Legal Advice Centre, you can gain rewarding practical experience by supporting the wider community and helping people who might otherwise find it hard to access justice support and advice.
  • Our enthusiastic teaching team includes experienced practitioners in law and criminology as well as researchers who have an international profile.

By studying our LLB (Hons) with Criminology you’ll gain a comprehensive all-round undergraduate legal education, alongside a thorough grounding in criminology and the challenges facing criminal justice professionals today.

You'll cover every aspect of legal services and engage with all the core professional skills, bringing what you read in the textbooks to life through genuine practical experience. At the same time, you’ll debate major ideas about retribution, rehabilitation and punishment, exploring why people commit crime, why laws are created and broken, the effectiveness of sentencing and punishment, and the impact of crime on victims, communities and wider society.

Flexibility and choice are a cornerstone of this course: our broad selection of optional modules means that you can specialise in areas as diverse as company law, commercial and consumer law, family law, international human rights, child protection, murder, psychopathy, cybercrime and miscarriages of justice.
