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.

What you'll experience

On this course, you can:

  • Bring what you learn to life in mock trials in our replica of a crown court, complete with dock, witness box, public gallery, jury room and interview room
  • Use your skills advising members of the public on a variety of aspects of the law, by working in one of our community settings
  • Opt for the CILEx Graduate Fast-track Diploma (Level 6 Diploma in Legal Practice) in your final year, which allows you to qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive lawyer when you get further experience after the course
  • Join our student law society and take part in team competitions such as negotiation and mooting

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.

This gives you similar career opportunities to barristers and solicitors.

The course also prepares you for graduate training schemes and other roles where you can use your knowledge and experience of law and criminology. For example, in the police force, probation service or prison service.
