Course summary

**Course overview**- Our Law with Criminology degree is suited to those who wish to achieve a recognised legal qualification with a strong interest in criminology, and an excellent starting point if you’re thinking of a career with a specific criminological interest.- This programme provides you with the opportunity to obtain a qualifying law degree whilst also gaining an awareness of current issues in criminology. By studying these complementary subjects side by side, you will ensure that you have the academic training required to pursue a career within the legal sector or within a wide range of other professions.- You will be taught by highly qualified staff from within the School of Justice and by renowned and extensively published criminology academics. You will gain an awareness of current legal issues and of current issues in criminology – debates surrounding criminal justice, social control and the role of the police.- The course covers all of the core law modules required for a qualifying law degree as well as considering both the nature of crime and criminality and society’s response to it.**Why study with us**- Preston is the second largest city in the UK for conducting trials, second only to London. Examples include the Cregan, Bulger, and Shipman trials. You can visit the courts and go behind the scenes.- You will be taught by leading academics and by staff who are professionally qualified and research active.- We've been providing innovative legal education for over half a century.**Further information**- The Criminology element to the programme provides academic study of the nature of crime, criminality and responses to crime in contemporary society. It considers how crime is defined, perceived as a problem, and managed in modern society.- A significant feature of Law study in the School of Justice is the emphasis from the outset on relevant legal and transferable skills, including research, oral and written, e-communication and critical reasoning skills, advocacy, personal development planning and group work.- We adopt a wide range of learning and teaching methods, designed to support you to develop as an independent learner. These include interactive online sessions, e-learn activities, workshops, reflective clinical legal education, group work, research exercises, presentations, mooting and debating as well as the more traditional seminars and lectures. You will have more structured class contact in Year 1 of your programme to support your transition to Higher Education.- You will be supported in finding legal placements and have numerous opportunities to visit relevant legal establishments, both locally and beyond. In Year 2 you are able to visit many of the European Institutions during a week-long study tour in Brussels.
