Law with Criminology University of Manchester

Undergraduate

The LLB Law with Criminology at Manchester will enable you to gain a deep appreciation of role of criminal justice and law within society, under the tuition of law and criminology experts who are committed to improving social justice through their research and teaching.

This is a joint honours qualifying law degree, allowing you to benefit from the extensive legal and criminological expertise at the University of Manchester. You will learn how to contextualise crime in its wider social and political setting, as well as how to evaluate new policy developments in law and justice.

You will develop an understanding of the nature and complexity of the criminal justice system in the UK, together with that of international legal and criminal justice systems, and their relevance and influence in global society.

Studying these two closely related subjects will offer opportunities to develop the skills, knowledge and professional connections necessary for a career in a variety of legal, criminal justice, and public service organisations.

Aims

This course aims to provide you with a knowledge and understanding of criminology and law as academic disciplines, at a breadth and depth appropriate to a first degree qualification.

More generally the course imparts an understanding of criminality, the institutions of law and criminal justice within your social, economic and political context, and provides you with the opportunity to develop specialised knowledge and skills in certain areas of criminology, socio-legal studies and law.

We will help you to develop social skills, and understanding of society and the role of criminal justice and law within society, and to develop an awareness of global challenges and how they are dealt with in different political, legal and cultural systems.
