Overview

This programme combines the expertise of the School of Law with the internationally recognised research and teaching strengths of the University’s Department of Sociology. The programme allows you to develop a critical understanding of the law and legal principles at a theoretical level whilst also studying advanced areas of criminology.

As well as equipping you with the skills and knowledge necessary to proceed to professional legal qualifications as a solicitor or barrister and to engage critically with the key principles of law in core subjects, the programme will give you an awareness of current issues in criminology in terms of debates surrounding criminal justice, social control and the role of the police.

At Level 1, you will study Criminal Law, Contract Law, Public Law 1, EU Law 1 and Legal Skills. For the Criminology element of the programme, modules on Criminal Justice Systems and Criminological Theories are taken.

At Level 2, subjects comprise EU Law 2, Tort Law 1 and 2, Property Law 1 (Land Law) and Public Law 2, with the Criminology elements comprising Criminological Theories and one sociology option from a range available from the Sociology Department.

You may undertake one of our highly successful Professional Training placements during the third year of your studies, although this is not compulsory. At Level 3, you will study Property Law 2 (Equity and Trusts), together with a number of Law options, as well as two Criminology options chosen from four optional modules available.

Career opportunities

Each year many former students take up permanent employment with prestigious employers who have included Electricité de France, Clifford Chance, Eversheds and other firms of solicitors, sets of barristers’ chambers and legal departments of large companies.

We offer a varied programme of careers sessions which provide advice and guidance on what you should do to develop a suitable career path. As part of this aim, the School, in combination with our Student Law Society, runs a variety of events, competitions and activities, such as mooting and client interviewing, that are not only enjoyable and rewarding but will also enhance your employability and introduce you to local and regional solicitors, barristers and other legal professionals.

The School also has close links with the College of Law in Guildford and co-operates with the College in a number of career development activities.
