Law

Criminal law

Law with Criminology is a popular combination for anyone who wants to focus on law and also gain valuable insights into the causes and consequences of crime.

You’ll study one criminology module each year, with the rest of your course devoted to law. After graduating, you’ll be exempt from the academic stage of qualifying as a solicitor or barrister.

You’ll learn how law is made and administered, and its relationship with the broader social, political and cultural context in which it operates. For the criminology part of the course, you’ll receive a solid introduction to the subject, including an understanding of the criminal justice system, which includes the police, courts and prison systems.

While much of the law course is compulsory, you’ll be able to choose from ten criminology modules in your second and third years to pursue areas that are of most interest to you.

You’ll be taught by leading academics. Professor Chandra Sriram founded and directed the Centre on Human Rights in Conflict. She has researched and published widely in the areas of international law, international relations, human rights, rule of law, conflict prevention, conflict resolution, peace building, international criminal law and post-atrocity justice.

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 about your long term prospects?

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