New for 2017/18

Law with Criminology - LLB (Hons)

If you’re looking to start this course in 2017, it's important to know that the content and structure are undergoing a substantial review and are likely to be different to what is outlined here. We’ll publish more detailed information about the changes over the next few months. If you’re starting in 2016, the course content/structure won’t be affected by the review.

Summary of our new course

The LLB (Hons) Law with Criminology course combines the essential foundations of legal knowledge with criminology (the study of crime, its causes, enforcement and prevention). The course is accredited by the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority and the Bar Council, as required by the Joint Academic Standards Board.

The course examines how social media is used in hate crimes, as well as terrorism and other forms of criminal activity. You will be taught by a team of experienced academics and former practitioners. You will learn in an authentic environment that includes two replica courtrooms.

You will have opportunities to undertake a UK-based placement, to participate in our American internship programme (some internships are based at offices handling death penalty cases), and to get involved in our highly regarded Student Mooting Society. Our Pro Bono Unit enables you to influence human rights cases and to work directly with clients.

Our alumni have secured employment with leading law firms and businesses. The Law School’s City Centre location facilitates close involvement with the legal and business communities. This degree programme will enable you to graduate equipped for the real world and well-placed to pursue a legal or non-legal career with a criminology focus.

What's covered in the course?

The course also looks at the rise of social media and how it is used in hate crimes, as well as terrorism and other forms of criminal activity.

Other modules you study will be divided across the two years and include: Skills, Processes and Scholarship, Public Law and Civil Rights, Land Law, Law of the European Union and Equity and Trusts.

Joint Academic Stage Board

Our LLB is accredited by the Joint Academic Stage Board, which represents the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board of England and Wales. It is a Qualifying Law Degree, satisfying the academic stage of training if you are seeking to qualify as a solicitor or barrister of England and Wales.

It is also recognised by the Bar Council of India. However, Bar Council of India recognition stipulates that the three-year LLB can only be taken by graduates e.g. BA, BSc, BCom, BBA (any subject). Non-graduate entrants, who seek Bar Council of India recognition, will need to take our unique four-year LLB.

Many overseas legal professional bodies recognise our LLB, particularly in Commonwealth countries. If you intend to practise overseas, you should contact the local Law Society or Bar Council. The majority will require you to undertake additional training after graduating from our LLB before being authorised to practise law.

Study and work abroad

If you are interested in undertaking part of your studies abroad, the Erasmus scheme may be of interest to you. It allows higher education students to study for part of their degree in another European country.

It is open to undergraduates in their second year (or above) and offers a unique opportunity to enhance your CV and experience new cultures. If you study with us you will have access to an Erasmus co-ordinator, who can provide information about which institutions we have links with.

Enhancing employability skills

A degree in law not only prepares you for a career in law, but equips you with a range of transferable skills that will enable you to enter a number of professions. Many of our graduates go on to become solicitors or barristers such as Regan Peggs who is now an Associate within a local law firm carrying out work with the Crown Court and High Court.

After graduating, our students have gone into jobs as barristers, chartered legal executives, licensed conveyancers and solicitors.

Others pursue law related careers both in private or public sector organisations. Some students use the transferable skills they have developed to go into areas such as journalism, insurance and accountancy.

You’ll also gain valuable experience through our Employability Challenge Weeks and our Leadership Challenge. Both give you the chance to apply your skills to innovative and exciting projects, industry talks and workshops. You’ll also receive guidance on how to complete application forms and how to write effective CVs.
