At the heart of this degree is the idea that future lawyers need to have knowledge of national, European and international laws and institutions. Primarily for LLB students wishing to study criminology and criminal justice to enhance their understanding of law’s role in society, this degree involves comprehensive study of key legal principles, doctrines, civil and criminal justice institutions and systems, together with modules that comprise the foundations of legal knowledge and the added advantage of a specialist minor in criminology. You will be expected to take an interest in legal issues and be able to comment on developments in the law, including new case law and legislation, based on your analysis of legal authorities. You will join a programme which serves as the academic stage of solicitor or barrister training, while our campus-based Pro-Bono Law Clinic provides you with practical experience in delivering legal advice under the supervision of solicitors or barristers. You will also be able to join the student Law Society, get involved in competitions, and attend networking events both on and off campus.
Please visit our website for information on available modules.
Assessment is designed to ensure that you acquire a wide range of skills, particularly those required by future employers. You will write case reports and essays, critically analyse legal documents, give oral presentations, defend and advise clients and take exams. Exams usually account for more than half of the marks for any module though a small number of modules are assessed by coursework only. You will always be given feedback on all your work so that you will learn from the experience.
