On this distinctive course, you will build all the key lawyering skills while gaining insights into the causes and consequences of crime, criminal psychology, punishment and rehabilitation**. **Why choose this course?** LLB (Hons) with Criminology is a ‘qualifying law degree’: it meets criteria set by the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors Regulation Authority and is a first step towards becoming a barrister or solicitor. At the same time, it explores broader issues surrounding crime, justice and society. **Is this course for you?** This dynamic degree broadens your career options. It spans every aspect of legal services plus the challenges facing criminal justice professionals today – in the police, courts, prison and probation services, youth offending teams and victim support groups. **How you will learn** LLB (Hons) with Criminology has a strong practical focus. Using our impressive court and interview rooms, you will gain skills in everything from case preparation to advocacy and negotiation. You will also undertake problem-based research into criminal and community justice systems. **Opportunities and experiences** There are opportunities for placements and internships, judicial shadowing, study trips, ‘pro bono’ projects to improve people’s access to justice, and mentoring by legal and criminology experts. **Careers and employability** Our graduates take up roles in private practice, the Crown Prosecution Service, the courts, law centres, the police, probation and prison services.
