Are you interested in learning about crime and criminal justice alongside key legal principles? Perhaps you’re thinking ahead to becoming a solicitor or barrister? Criminology and law go hand in hand in this dynamic degree. What is the relationship between crime and the criminal justice system? How do perspectives differ on the causes of crime? And how do key legal principles work? On this course you’ll examine the complex relationship between crime, justice and the law. Studying on our criminology and law degree gives you the opportunity to gain exemptions in the academic stage of training to become a solicitor or barrister, depending on the modules you choose. Criminology and law students are based in our £6 million Law and Psychology building, which provides ultra-modern teaching and learning facilities. There is even a mooting room where students can practice their advocacy and cross-examination techniques. You’ll also get the chance to visit important legal institutions such as: 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.
Please visit our website for information on available modules.
Methods of assessment are designed to ensure that you acquire a wide range of skills, particularly those required by future employers. You will write essays and case reports, critically analyse legal documents, give oral presentations, defend and advise clients and take examinations. Most modules are assessed by a combination of coursework and examination, or by coursework alone. Feedback will be given on all of your work so that you can develop your criminological and legal skills.
