Overview Why study law with criminology with us Our LLB Law with Criminology is perfectly suited for those wishing to become a legal practitioner specializing in criminal law. The course lets you study two complementary perspectives while you gain the initial academic skills to become a qualified solicitor or barrister in England and Wales. The course is recognised by both the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board and we’re internationally known for both our law and criminology expertise – and our law with criminology course puts you at the heart of legal innovation. Our course gives you the intellectual knowledge and transferable skills that make up the first stage of professional legal education. You’ll learn the core principals of law in England and Wales while you develop your understanding of criminology – and the complexities this presents. You’ll also put theory into practice with work-based modules that will help you develop the hands-on skills and expertise to compete in both the criminal justice system and the legal profession.

Work placements are integral to the programme – we place our students with professional legal bodies, so you get work experience alongside your theoretical studies. You’ll be encouraged to put your skills to good use through our Legal Advice Centre, where you can help people and get your first taste of the law in practice. The skills you’ll gain on this course will not only set you up for a career in the legal field but prepare you for other exciting paths. Sectors like the Civil Service, government, education, and many more find a law degree highly desirable – you’ll have plenty of career choices after graduation. Past students of this course have gone on to work for organisations like Irwin Mitchell, U.S Department of the Treasury, Crown Prosecution Service, and Home Office. Get the support you need to succeed When it comes to support, you’ll be matched with a Personal Tutor to get the backing you need. You’ll also get support from our Student Learning and Graduate Academic Assistants who have personal experience in your subject.
