This degree will provide you with practical legal knowledge and give you an understanding of crime, criminology and criminal justice from theoretical, historical, cultural and social perspectives.

Outside of academic study you will have multiples opportunities to develop valuable practical legal experience and to develop your legal and employability skills. You can participate in mooting and negotiation competitions, undertake invaluable pro bono work, work with our dedicated careers support team to develop your CV, and join our very active student Law Society.
