Course summary

**About the course**This course is aimed at students who want to combine a traditional English Law Degree with the fascinating field of Criminology. This is the study of what causes crime, its consequences and how we respond to it. Combining these will give you a strong understanding of the evolving state of our society and the challenges it faces.You will be able to enrol on Sociology modules taught across UEA Schools. This is a closely related subject that focuses on the development and functioning of society. It will allow you to explore diverse and sometimes conflicting ideas of what the key issues are and how they should be addressed.Much of your study will be anchored around contemporary events and live issues that are affecting the world today. This course will give you a broad knowledge and skills base, with which to succeed in a wide variety of law and non-related careers.**Overview**The course combines the seven foundation subjects of a traditional law degree with a foundation module in Criminology (Crime and Society), a more advanced Criminology module and the introductory modules of English Legal System and Law in Practice. These subjects enable students to understand the different ways in which the law impacts and regulates our lives, and the relationship between the individual and the state. They will lay the foundation for you to gain an advanced understanding of law and crime related subjects in your final year.Thanks to the UEA Law School’s semesterised approach to teaching, each of our modules are taught in one semester, freeing you up to have more free choice later in the course. You will choose seven optional modules across your second and final years of study.These free choices allow you to tailor your degree around the subjects that interest you and stimulate your curiosity. Choices combine subjects in law, such as Company, Employment, Family Law, Law and Medicine and Human Rights, with those related to Crime, such as The Criminal Process, Miscarriages of Justice and the advanced Criminology module, Contemporary Concerns in Crime and Justice.Uniquely, you will also be able to choose from optional modules available to UEA students enrolled on the BA Sociology programme, including subjects such as Digital Politics, Activist Campaigning, Gender and Sexuality, and Social Construction of Childhood.During your studies, you will enjoy the support of our outstanding employability programme and have the opportunity to take part in the many voluntary activities that are the reason we are ‘The Law School that Makes a Difference’. These include getting involved in our Justice Project, where you will work on cases of prisoners who maintain they were the victims of miscarriages of justice. You can also get involved in the School’s award-winning Law Clinic, providing free legal advice under the supervision of local solicitors, to members of the local community who cannot otherwise access it.**Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
