Summary: Including an integrated foundation year if you don’t have the appropriate subjects or grades for direct entry to the first year, this qualifying law degree offers all the compulsory law modules of an LLB (Hons) plus a strong introduction to the core principles of crime, criminality and the criminal justice process. Course details: You study law, criminology and criminal justice modules (usually 67% law and 33% criminology/criminal justice) 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, Criminology and Criminal Justice 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 replicates Teesside Combined Court. The courtroom 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 variety of careers in both the legal professions and the criminal justice agencies. The transferable skills you develop on this cross-disciplinary programme can be used in a wide range of other professions including the probation service, prison service, police, voluntary organisations and public sector.
