At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.
Our programme provides a strong foundation for developing an understanding of, and building towards a career in, criminal justice and related areas.
On Law with Criminology, you will learn the key principles and doctrines underlying English, European and International law and develop an understanding of its social, political, historical and comparative contexts.
Practical experience could be developed by participating in mooting (practising oral arguments), client interviewing, and volunteering as a Community Legal Companion as part of our innovative CLOCK programme. You will also explore questions such as: what are the relationships between the courts and other branches of criminal justice? And how does the law influence policing, the prison system or the rehabilitation of offenders?
What will this mean for my future? This degree will provide students with the knowledge and professional exemptions needed to train to become a solicitor or barrister. It will also prepare you for a wide range of other career opportunities.
It will also open up a wide range of other careers including the police, probation, prison, the courts services, community safety, human rights, transnational law, social work or the civil service.
