If you’re interested in law and criminological theory and practice, this LLB (Hons) Law with Criminology degree course will match your interests.
The course is a qualifying law degree (QLD), which means it gives you the core legal knowledge to progress to the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) to train as a solicitor or barrister. In your final year, you can also choose to take the CILEx Graduate fast-track diploma. This allows you to qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive following further professional experience.
As well as core legal subjects, you’ll get to choose from various optional units to suit your own interests. These currently include Commercial Law and White Collar Crime.
After the course, you could continue your legal training or take up employment in sectors such as the police or the probation service. You could also continue your studies on a Master’s degree.

Careers and opportunities
After the course, you could progress to a graduate training scheme, go straight into employment in the private, public or voluntary sector, or continue your studies.
If you chose a career in law, you can do the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) or Legal Practice Course (LPC), which are the traditional routes to becoming a barrister or solicitor.
If you take the CILEx Graduate Fast-track Diploma unit in your final year, you can work as legal executive or paralegal when you graduate and become a Chartered Legal Executive lawyer following 3 years of qualifying employment. This gives you similar career opportunities to barristers and solicitors.
