Brunel University London has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The Brunel Law with Criminal Justice LLB gives students the opportunity to earn a qualifying law degree with specialised knowledge in the field of criminal law and criminal justice. Along with the requirements of the traditional LLB degree you’ll learn substantive criminal law and how the criminal justice system works in practice and procedure. Importantly, you’ll be encouraged to use this knowledge to think critically about crime: its origins, its impact on society and the most effective strategies to combat it. We offer two study options. You can choose three years full-time, or four years full-time with a one-year professional placement that will give you hands-on experience in a legal practice. Our Law with Criminal Justice LLB undergraduate degree is accredited by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA), meaning that you will gain the necessary knowledge and skills required to go on to be a practicing solicitor. Please note, from October 2019, rather than accrediting LLB Degrees, the Bar Standard Board requires law degrees to cover the seven legal foundation subjects and the skills associated with graduate legal work in order to meet the requirements of the Academic Component of becoming a barrister. Brunel Law School's LLB Degrees fully meet these requirements. All of our students have careers advisers who you can discuss career ideas with and who can offer guidance on placements and further study options throughout the duration of your time with us.
