This course is designed to meet the requirements of a qualifying law degree – the academic stage of legal training. You will develop a comprehensive understanding of the nature of law, the relationship between law and justice, and law in action. Further grounding in criminology allows you to draw on a range of perspectives useful for understanding law in context, with particular references to state responses to crime and the regulation of behaviour. Students can progress in to a range of law and criminology related careers, including roles as Barristers and Solicitors as well as other careers within the law sector. Examples of careers students may pursue include: legal practice (with further training for those intending to become Solicitors, Barristers, Chartered Legal Executives, Patent Attorneys or Trade Mark Attorneys), local government, criminal justice roles, social justice, financial services and journalism.
