About Law and Criminal Justice with Foundation Year at Liverpool John Moores University

Many of your tutors have professional frontline experience of working either within the law as solicitors or barristers or within the criminal justice system, with international reputations for research and writing, giving you a solid grounding in both areas.

While this course prepares you for a career in the legal profession, it also develops vital personal skills in teamwork, communication, writing and time management, so that you are more than ready to face the challenges of a range of careers should you decide that law isn’t for you.

This School has an enviable record in national debating and mediation competitions and we have an active and friendly law society, which provides an ideal opportunity to build contacts for future work placements.

Foundation Year

The Foundation Year is ideal if you have the interest and ability to study for a degree, but do not have the qualifications to enter directly onto the Law and Criminal Justice honours degree programme yet.

Once you pass the Foundation Year (level 3) you will progress directly onto the first year of the honours degree. If you are a full-time UK student, you will qualify for student financial support for the full duration of your course (subject to eligibility criteria).

We encourage you to organise a placement for your final year as it will give you vital experience of how the law or criminal justice system work in practice. For the same reasons, we recommend that you undertake some form of voluntary work during your time at LJMU and/or apply to take part in the School's Erasmus programme to see how legal systems work in another country.

As the course progresses, the modules become more focused on preparing you to work in the legal or criminal justice systems, and in your final year you will be able to specialise in the areas that interest you most, whether they be vocational or more abstract topics.

Notes about fees for this course

The fees quoted are those for the 2018/19 year as information for 2019/20 is not yet available. The Department for Education (DfE) have recently announced that they will be freezing tuition fees for the 2019/20 academic year. However, this is still subject to the normal parliamentary approval. Once 2019/20 fees are confirmed we will update our web pages accordingly.
