As a law degree that also develops your understanding of criminology and criminal justice, you will learn about why people commit crimes, how society deals with it, and where law fits into the equation.
You'll get the chance to provide real legal advice to real clients at our Legal Advice Centre that makes a huge difference to lives of the local community, and be encouraged to get involved in a range extracurricular activities to boost your employability.
This could be taking part in rewarding volunteering projects - such as our award-winning Appropriate Adult scheme. Plus our very active Student Law Society organises regular mooting competitions and client interview practice - as well as a variety of social activities.
You can hone your debating skills in our authentic mock courtrooms. Our new state-of-the-art court allows you to bring the courtroom to life right here on campus. Take part in mock trials to practice your skills and prepare for your future career. Our Student Law Society organises regular mooting competitions, as well as client interview practice.
You'll also be able to take advantage of well-established careers events that allow you to network with potential future employers - including an annual law convention with leading law firms like Gosschalks, Rollits, rradar, Pepperells, Andrew Jackson Solicitors, and our Careers in Criminal Justice event.
Alongside our law expertise, as pioneers of the academic study of criminology over 40 years, our strong links with local, regional and national criminal justice agencies ensure your learning is kept up-to-date, practical and relevant. Our lecturers have specialist knowledge on diverse topics such as modern-day slavery, knife crime, domestic violence and cyber terrorism - which is all brought into the lecture theatre, and they will help you define and develop your own areas of interest.
We’re also partnered with the University of Law, which runs a series of bespoke courses to help prepare students for both the SQE examination and other professional qualifications.
