Our LLB (Hons) Law degree prepares you for a career in the legal profession, fulfilling the academic stage of training required to become a solicitor or barrister.
You will develop a firm understanding of key legal principles and institutions, as well as the fundamentals of national, European and international laws, while you train and practice your mooting skills. There is also the exciting opportunity to offer free-of-charge legal advice to real clients through our Pro-Bono Law Clinic.
If you would prefer to combine the study of key legal principles with either politics or an exploration of the causes of crime, we also offer qualifying Law with Politics and Law with Criminology programmes, as well as a non-qualifying Criminology and Law degree.
The £6m Law and Psychology building provides contemporary teaching and learning facilities for students in the Department of Law and Criminology.
The three-storey building includes a 265-seat lecture theatre, seminar and tutorial rooms, and social learning areas which encourage a more informal and interactive style of learning.
Elsewhere on campus, there is a mooting room (a mock courtroom) where Policing and Law students can train and practice their advocacy skills and cross-examination techniques, as well as preparing for giving evidence in court.
New for 2019, a dedicated Police Training and Simulation Facility (Crime House), part of which is to be furbished as a police station, will be used to simulate a wide range of crime scenes. This will enable Policing and Law students to work together in areas such as gathering and analysing evidence, including forensic evidence at crime scenes, as well as practicing interview techniques used by the police through role play, while also ensuring that the rights of suspects are upheld.
