Overview

This law degree option allows you to study law as your main subject, enabling you to develop legal knowledge and skills, and combine this with study in criminology and criminal justice.

This major course is recognised as a qualifying law degree (QLD) for professional purposes in the UK. This means it is recognised as a qualifying law degree for professional purposes of the Solicitors Regulation Authority and The Bar Standards Board. This means it satisfies the academic stage of training set by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board for progression to the vocational stage – either the Legal Practice Course (LPC) to become a solicitor or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) to become a barrister.

Many students combine law with another subject because it provides broader career options, while still being a qualifying law degree. Two thirds of your time will be devoted to studying law and one third for criminology. See more about our Criminology course.

Career opportunities

The Law with Criminology and Criminal Justice degree will appeal to those wishing to work in the criminal justice field, either as qualified lawyers or in a range of other possible careers including in the police and prison services or protection and victim support services.

In addition to specific knowledge of the law and its applications in the real world, you will gain a vast range of transferable skills such as the ability to communicate effectively, retrieve and handle information competently, analyse and solve problems, and have the confidence to present logical, reasoned arguments. Such emphasis on the acquisition of skills means that our graduates are well-equipped for the challenges of the workplace.
