This inspirational and challenging course has excellence in legal practice at its core but also delivers invaluable insights into the causes and consequences of crime, how crime is measured and defined, and how criminals are managed and controlled.
This degree delivers a comprehensive all-round undergraduate legal education. You will develop your knowledge of every aspect of legal services and engage with all the core professional skills. Selecting from a broad choice of optional modules, you could also specialise in areas such as medical, international, family, employment or social and public law.
You’ll gain practical experience at every stage of the course, with training in drafting, advocacy, interviewing and negotiation. You could also take part in pro bono activities, providing vital legal services to those who might otherwise find it difficult to access justice.
As part of the course, you will also have the opportunity to explore criminology in greater detail and examine some of the major concerns that dominate our front pages. You will develop your understanding of the challenges and dilemmas facing criminal justice professionals today - in the police, courts, prison and probation services, youth offending teams and victim support groups.
