Law with Criminology at Edge Hill University - UCAS

Course summary

Are you fascinated by law and how it is viewed through a criminological lens? Our Qualifying Law Degree, Law and Criminology LLB (Hons), explores the foundations of law and theories of crime, providing exemptions from the academic stage of training to become a solicitor or barrister. Our law with criminology degree provides an overview of legal systems and institutions with a minor specialism in criminology. You’ll get an understanding of the law’s role in society and key legal principles such as civil liabilities, legal reasoning and contract law. You’ll explore contemporary case studies and their critiques to sharpen your critical analysis skills. You’ll look at the police, criminal courts, prisons and youth justice services under the microscope, and understand the legal system as a whole – including its impact on society. In the final year of law with criminology, you’ll choose an optional module from a variety of specialist areas of law. Outside of the classroom you’ll be offered the chance to visit courts including the Old Bailey, the Supreme Court and Parliament in London, the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg and the European Parliament and European Commission in Brussels. Listen to regular guest lectures from experienced lawyers like Paul Tweed – a libel lawyer who has represented clients such as Britney Spears, Whitney Houston and Liam Neeson. Want to get practical experience? Show your legal prowess in our on-campus courtroom, where you’ll take part in mock courtroom scenarios and get a taste of the real thing. Join the student-led Law Society to meet your peers and Edge Hill alumni. Our law and criminology degree provides an engaging, insightful and thorough insight into the world of law and crime, equipping you with the practical and substantive knowledge to practise law.
