Overview

Whether you are considering a legal career with a psychological slant, a psychology career with an understanding of the legal issues, or even using knowledge from both areas in other fields, the Law with Psychology (Hons) programme at the University of Essex Online will allow you to explore psychology alongside your LLB while opening up your career opportunities.

You’ll look into a range of legal and psychological topics such as:

  • tortious liability, negligence and duty of care
  • the milestones in human development throughout their lifespan
  • criminal law, burden of proof and proposal for reform
  • the social factors that impact on individuals’ lives

Towards the end of your study you will complete a detailed research project on any topic of interest within the scope of your degree. By conducting your own research and collating appropriate resources, you will be able to produce a thorough insight into your chosen area.

Your future

Legal knowledge is a highly useful commodity in a range of roles, including management, finance, human resources, education, local and central government and the voluntary sector. Your new psychology skills will also be beneficial to roles within healthcare, criminal justice, the civil service and security services.

As a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD), this course allows you to complete the academic stage of legal education. If this is your objective, you must complete all your degree studies in no more than six years and achieve a minimum of a lower second class honours degree.
