Course summary

Law and criminology are inextricably linked. This qualifying degree gives you a solid grounding in law, as well as an understanding of criminology: the nature of crime, its causes, and how best to manage it.At Leicester, you will develop skills in legal and academic reasoning and research, and an appreciation of the social and policy issues underlying the law. You will study modules from both Leicester Law School and the School of Criminology which examine the nature, extent, causes, and control of criminal behaviour in both the individual and wider society. You will also explore the factors that underscore processes of law-making, law-breaking and law enforcement.You can broaden your perspective with a year studying overseas, or make a difference by giving free legal advice to real clients through our Pro-Bono group. We will also encourage you to build practical skills through our award-winning extracurricular activities.Law and Criminology are inseparable. Each discipline informs the other - changes in law inevitably lead to criminologists adapting their understanding, and vice versa. This course is ideal if you are interested in criminal law and want to broaden your knowledge to include what goes on outside the courtroom.Topics that are typically explored in criminology include:What is the nature of criminal behaviour? Why do individuals commit crime? How and why do definitions of crime change over time and between societies? How should society deal with criminal activity? By combining the study of Law with Criminology you can complement and contextualise your Law studies for a broader and deeper understanding of your subject. This is a joint honours course, in which Law modules make up 75% of the content, with Criminology modules accounting for the other 25%.
