This course combines the essential elements of a law degree with the study of criminology to enable you to gain an insight into criminal behaviour, policing and criminal justice. Your legal studies will be enhanced by your understanding of criminology as you explore current responses to crime and develop your understanding of current and past legislation. COURTROOM Our students can hone their legal expertise in purpose-built facilities, including our very own courtroom. EMPLOYABILITY We have strong connections with local, regional and national law firms, so you will network with potential employers through guest lectures and have the opportunity to be mentored by an industry expert. You can take part in competitions to sharpen your legal skills in mooting, negotiation, mediation, debating, interviewing and advising. This will help you develop your personal and employability skills and provide further opportunities to engage with legal professionals.
