The Law with Criminology (Hons) programme from St Mary's University, Twickenham, London offers both practice focussed vocational modules and those exploring research based criminology, legal theory and cultural issues encouraging in-depth study and extended learning.

The Law with Criminology programme is tailored for students who are interested in careers in the criminal justice system, or are interested in law and in becoming a barrister or solicitor. 

A major challenge to society is 'crime'. Criminology examines 'crime' and 'deviance,' and the processes through which the criminal justice system responds to these phenomena.

You will learn the core ‘foundations of legal knowledge’ required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board in order to pass the academic stage of training and progress on to the vocational stage.


Although many law graduates will go on to their vocational training in order to practise law as a barrister, solicitor, legal executive, others become paralegals. Almost half of graduates use their law degree to enter careers in the private and public sector, public services, commerce and government.

Generally, a Law with Criminology LLB degree is highly valued by employers in all sectors as you will have a range of highly transferable skills as well as a detailed and analytical knowledge of law.

Law with Criminology graduates have a wide variety of career options including those in the criminal justice system. Possible career pathways include:

  • Policy and administration
  • Government civil service 
  • Campaign groups working for social and criminal justice
  • Investigating justice and victim support
  • The Police
  • HM Prison Service 
  • National Probation Service
  • Community, health and social work
  • Postgraduate programmes, research and teaching
