Summary: Including an integrated foundation year if you don’t have the appropriate subjects or grades for direct entry to the first year of the degree, this qualifying law degree offers all the compulsory law modules of an LLB (Hons) plus a strong introduction to core principles of police practice and policy. Course details: You study law and policing modules (67% law and 33% policing) in each year of the programme allowing for development of expertise in both areas of study, culminating in a dissertation providing an opportunity to combine both disciplines. LLB (Hons) Law and Policing is split across three years, each consisting of two semesters. You study three modules in each semester, totalling six modules per academic year. Excellent facilities include a courtroom that has all the features of a modern court and can be used as a fully functioning facility. Our specialist crime scene house is one of only a few such facilities in the country. Under the guidance of experienced staff your learning involves a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops and guided reading. In lectures, specific information is delivered to larger groups while in the smaller seminar groups issues can be explored in more depth. Workshops are informal sessions in which you can extend your knowledge or seek further clarification of issues. You have the opportunity to complete practical sessions within the crime scene house, vehicle examination laboratory, mock police station, interview rooms and the mock courtroom. In addition to scheduled teaching sessions, staff are readily available to provide further academic support and guidance. A host of distinguished guests deliver lectures which enhance your learning experience. Completion of the seven foundation subjects gives Qualifying Law Degree status, granting exemption from the academic stage of training as a solicitor or barrister. After the course: This degree provides the knowledge and skills to pursue a wide range of careers in both the legal professions and the police service. The transferable skills you develop on this cross-disciplinary programme can be used in a wide range of other professions including within the broader criminal justice sector.
