Overview

Through studying this specialised pathway you will gain a practice-based education in law with a critical appreciation of crime with our LLB (Hons) Law with Criminology programme.

The aim of this pathway is to allow you to study the foundations of law while exploring the social aspects of crime, punishment and victimisation, making this course highly relevant if you are aiming for a career in the legal profession or more generally within the criminal justice system.

The specialised Criminology modules will enable you to explore a diverse set of criminological issues, from youth crime to intelligence and security. You’ll engage in philosophical and ethical debates surrounding war and conflict, developing a criminological understanding of homicide and victimisation.

Programme structure

Throughout the programme, you’ll be given the chance to practice a range of legal skills, including legal research, problem solving, advocacy and drafting, as well as a host of transferrable skills.

Teaching sessions will include lectures and small group interactive seminars, and we will also encourage you to use our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), which will offer interactive, practice-orientated opportunities to test and apply your legal skills.

The programme offers a diverse range of assessments, which are practice-led and knowledge-applied, providing an opportunity for you to demonstrate your legal knowledge and employability skills. Your learning will include a range of activities, which will be influenced by professional practice, and assessments will be delivered through coursework, case summaries, courtroom moots and examinations.

The assessments you undertake have been devised to fit with the ethos of the programme and the way it is taught – it is based on authentic situations encountered in professional practice.

There will be one point of final assessment for 20-credit modules, and a maximum of two points of final assessment for 40-credit modules (unless stated otherwise).

Career opportunities

Key employability skills are embedded within the learning and teaching, and we will provide you with additional careers development opportunities through a programme of guest speakers, pro bono and placement opportunities which offer you practical experience of work.

Our nationally recognised Mooting Society, Student Legal Society and Student Debating Society also provide extra-curricular opportunities for you to practise, develop and enhance the transferable skills you have developed within the learning environment.
