Overview
Studying an LLB at Middlesex you will gain the legal skills and abilities to complete the academic stage of training, and with your qualification, embark on the next stage of vocational training to become a fully qualified solicitor or barrister in England and Wales. Studied together, law and criminology provide complementary perspectives that offer a joined-up understanding of law in its social and policy context.

Why study LLB Law with Criminology at Middlesex University?
The LLB Law with Criminology is a qualifying law degree that provides you with the knowledge and understanding of the principles of law, particularly in the Foundations of Legal Knowledge, and an opportunity to develop the associated transferable intellectual and key skills that will enable you to satisfy the requirements set by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board for the academic stage of training.

You will study the fundamental doctrines and principles which underpin the law of England and Wales, and will gain specialist knowledge and understanding of law and criminology and the complexities therein, developing skills and equipping you with expertise to move towards professional and related practice in this area.

Work placements are integral to the programme with a vibrant clinical legal education initiative that places law students with professional legal bodies in order to combine work experience with academic education. It also combines skills such as mooting and mediation within the programme and extra-curricular to the programme, including entering teams into formal mooting and mediation competitions nationally and internationally.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Law graduates tend to go into the legal industry, and they usually take similar routes. Jobs are competitive — often very competitive - but starting salaries are good and high fliers can earn serious money - starting on over £24k in London on average. Be aware though - some careers, especially as barristers, can take a while to get into, and the industry is changing as the Internet, automation and economic change all have an effect, If you want to qualify to practise law, you need to take a professional qualification — many law graduates then go on to law school. If you want to go into work, then a lot of law graduates take trainee or paralegal roles and some do leave the law altogether, often for jobs in management, finance and the police force. A small proportion of law graduates also move into another field for further study. Management, accountancy and teaching are all popular for these career changers, so if you do take a law degree and decide it’s not for you, there are options.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

We have quite a lot of sociology graduates, although numbers fell last year. But graduates still do pretty well. Most sociology graduates go straight into work when they complete their degrees, and a lot of graduates go into jobs in social professions such as recruitment, education, community and youth work, and housing. An important option for a sociology graduate is social work - and we're short of people willing to take this challenging but rewarding career. Sociology is a flexible degree and you can find graduates from the subject in pretty much every reasonable job — obviously, you don't find many doctors or engineers, but you do find them in finance, the media, healthcare, marketing and even IT. Sociology graduates taking further study often branch out into other qualifications, like teaching, law, psychology, HR and even maths, so don’t think a sociology degree restricts you to just one set of options.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
