Program description

Law at Brunel is ranked 8th in London (The Complete University Guide 2018)

Law is not a subject you can take or leave. Students come to our friendly Brunel Law School with a passion. They leave with their passion focused into a degree that is recognised and valued around the world.
Understanding how criminal justice works as a system will enable you to think critically about the genesis of crime, its effects on society and the most effective strategies to fight against it. The course brings the substantive (statutory/written law) and procedural (the 'machinery' to enforce) criminal law together into one programme.

There are two options available to students wishing to undertake the LLB with a specialisation in criminal justice:
•LLB Law with Criminal Justice (three years full-time)
•LLB Law with Criminal Justice (Professional Placement) (four years) - this includes a one-year work placement in law-related work. Previous placements have been in solicitors' firms, barristers' chambers, governmental institutions and related organisations.

LLB Law with Criminal Justice fulfils all the requirements of the traditional LLB degree, giving graduates qualifying law degree status. They gain the competitive advantage of a specialised knowledge in the area of criminal law and criminal justice.

To ensure that students possess a solid foundation and gain the most comprehensive understanding of criminal justice, in the first year of the programme they are introduced to the Criminal Justice System in conjunction with substantive criminal law. This allows them to put substantive criminal law into its procedural, institutional and cultural context.

Brunel Law School is one of only a few law schools to have a full moot court where you can practise your skills for court. It comes complete with judge’s bench, seating for counsel and court clerks, a gallery for up to 50 other participants, a deliberation room for judges and full audio-visual facilities. Our courses are offered as either three or four-year programmes depending on whether you choose the professional placement option. All three degrees study the same modules in Years 1 and 2, covering the essential legal knowledge. In Year 3, you’ll decide how you’d like to specialise. All courses include an independent research project in Year 3.
