Course summary

Why Law with Criminology? The aim of this course is to enable you to study the foundations of law while exploring the social aspects of crime, punishment and victimisation which makes it highly relevant if you wish to pursue a career in the field of criminal justice (for example, the police service, probation service, Crown Prosecution Service, prison service or other related fields). How will you learn? You will learn through practical application and delivered lectures, workshops, seminars and group work sessions. * You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of legal principles and core legal concepts. * You’ll be able to start focussing on the topics that interest you in your second and third years, when you can choose from a range of specialised modules. * The specialised Criminology and Legal modules will enable you to explore a diverse set of criminological issues, from Criminological Explanations, Administration of Justice, Human Rights and Contemporary and Comparative Criminology. To help you take the first steps in your legal career we aim to give you as much experience as possible. Our strong alumni networks provide wide opportunities to engage with local legal practitioners working in regionally and internationally renowned firms.Our Law School Professional Mentoring scheme is a particular success which enables our students to bridge the gap between education and working in the legal sector. IMPORTANT NOTICE If you are thinking of becoming a solicitor please read the following statement which we received in April 2017 from the Solicitors Regulation Authority. The SRA specifies the qualification requirements for solicitors. “The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has announced it will be introducing the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE), the earliest date for introduction is Autumn 2021. This will be a national assessment for anyone who wants to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales. It will provide a fair and consistent assessment for all candidates regardless of whether they have taken a law degree or qualified through new routes like the solicitor apprenticeship. If you have already started your law degree, or will do so before the SQE is introduced, you will be able to finish and qualify in the same way as before or qualify under the new system. The SRA is providing information and guidance about how to qualify in the new system so keep checking its website. Please find more details on the SRA's website here - http://https//www.sra.org.uk/sra/policy/sqe/ The Legal Advice Clinic was set up by students in 2013 in response to the legal aid cuts which left the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in society without access to legal representation. The university invested in a clinic which is innovatively placed off campus in a shop in the town centre. Over the last academic year students, working with academics and local solicitors, have helped hundreds of people who otherwise may not have access to legal help and assistance. Volunteering in the legal advice clinic represents transformational learning at its best and compliments your theoretical studies. You'll develop into reflective practitioners and realise the importance of professionalism. Through advising real clients in real life situations You'll also see a side of law that cannot be taught in a lecture theatre or tutorial and the real impact that the law can have on individuals. For three years in a row, our students were shortlisted for the prestigious LawWorks and Attorney General Awards, winning 'Best Contribution by a Team of UK Students' in 2015. ~ Gemma Manning, Senior Lecturer.
