Program description

In this law degree, you will be encouraged to think like a lawyer from day one. Learn the essential law foundation subjects in order to practise law alongside exploring current trends and different responses to crime. Our practice-based learning approach focuses on understanding the law in the context of everyday life and legal practice, and applying your learning to a range of critical criminological and legal issues.

The course has been designed by experienced academics and practitioners, with input from our internationally-renowned Crucible Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice. It is specifically designed for your career development. Throughout your degree, you will work with practitioners from the legal sector. You will have the opportunity to put law into action through our pro bono activities with the Citizens Advice Bureau and work placements.

Our teaching draws on a range of disciplines such as sociology, psychology and human rights to provide you with a dynamic understanding of a wide range of legal concepts, values, principles and rules of English law, criminological theories and criminal justice practice. A high proportion of your time will be spent working face to face with tutors, developing your understanding of legal and criminological issues and the core skills and competencies that legal practitioners are expected to have.

Modules include: ‘Legal Systems, Ethics and Skills’ where you will introduced to the structure and functions of the English legal system., ‘Criminal Law’ where you will focus on key principles in crimes such as murder, manslaughter, non-fatal and theft related offences and ‘Introduction to Criminal Justice’ where you will analyse contemporary trends and policies in the criminal justice system.
