Law with Criminology & International Study - University of Manchester

The LLB Law with Criminology and International Study at Manchester will enable you to gain a deep appreciation of the role of criminal justice and law within society, alongside the opportunity to broaden your cultural appreciation of these related disciplines in a global setting. This is a joint honours qualifying law degree, allowing you to benefit from the extensive legal and criminological expertise at the University of Manchester. You will learn how to contextualise crime in its wider social and political setting, as well as how to evaluate new policy developments in law and justice. You will develop an understanding of the nature and complexity of the criminal justice system in the UK, and the ability to think globally and consider comparative approaches to legal, criminological and socio-legal issues. Combining these two closely related subjects with international study will allow you to acquire a practical understanding of legal, criminal justice and cultural issues within an international context, and develop the skills, knowledge and professional connections necessary for a variety of legal, criminal justice and public service careers. **Aims** This course aims to provide you with a knowledge and understanding of criminology and law as academic disciplines, at a breadth and depth appropriate to a first degree qualification. More generally the course imparts an understanding of criminality, the institutions of law and criminal justice within your social, economic and political context, and provides you with the opportunity to develop specialised knowledge and skills in certain areas of criminology, socio-legal studies and law. We will help you to develop social skills, and understanding of society and the role of criminal justice and law within society, and to develop an awareness of global challenges and how they are dealt with in different political, legal and cultural systems. The opportunity to study abroad will enable you to develop knowledge and understanding of legal and criminal justice systems from the perspective of another country and a comparative understanding of law, criminology and socio-legal concepts, theories and methods. **Special Features** **Legal Advice Centre** Gain insights into the legal profession, whilst helping members of the public with real life legal issues by volunteering at the Legal Advice Centre.
