Sheffield has a lot of expertise and experience in criminology – this course was one of the first of its kind in the UK. Like all our LLB courses, it has been developed in consultation with the legal profession to provide you with the best possible basis for a career. You will be taught by leading researchers, many of them practising professionals.
Top law firms often visit the school, contributing to your education and interviewing high-achieving students for jobs. We also offer plenty of opportunities for voluntary work experience, at our free legal advice clinic and through the Miscarriages of Justice Review Centre.
Many of our graduates go on to train with leading law firms. Some train as solicitors through our own in-house Legal Practice Course. Sheffield is also one of the UK’s top ten producers of barristers. In their later careers, Sheffield graduates have become judges and Lord Justices of Appeal.
