Overview

Programme Aims

Law and Criminology are inseparable. Each discipline informs the other - changes in law inevitably lead to criminologists adapting their understanding, and vice versa. This Law and Criminology course offered at the UNiversity of Leicester is ideal if you are interested in criminal law and want to broaden your knowledge to include what goes on outside the courtroom.

You will develop skills in legal and academic reasoning and research, and an appreciation of the social and policy issues underlying the law. You will study modules from both Leicester Law School and the School of Criminology which examine the nature, extent, causes, and control of criminal behaviour in both the individual and wider society. You will also explore the factors that underscore processes of law-making, law-breaking and law enforcement.Topics that are typically explored in criminology include:
  • What is the nature of criminal behaviour?
  • Why do individuals commit crime?
  • How and why do definitions of crime change over time and between societies?
  • How should society deal with criminal activity?
