About Law with Criminology at University of Portsmouth

Overview

If you’re interested in law and criminological theory and practice, this LLB (Hons) Law with Criminology degree course will match your interests.

The course is a qualifying law degree (QLD). It fulfils the requirements of the academic stage of training as specified by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board. This means that you can progress to the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or the vocational stage of training for the bar without additional study.

As well as core legal subjects, you’ll get to choose from various optional modules to suit your own interests. These currently include Commercial Law and White Collar Crime.

After the course, you could continue your legal training or take up employment in sectors such as the police or the probation service. You could also continue your studies on a Master’s degree.

On this course, you can:

  • Bring what you learn to life in mock trials in our replica of a crown court, complete with dock, witness box, public gallery, jury room and interview room
  • Use your skills advising members of the public on a variety of aspects of the law, by working in one of our community settings
  • Join our student law society and take part in team competitions such as negotiation and mooting
  • Develop your understanding of the key issues in criminology

Careers and opportunities

After the course, you could progress to a graduate training scheme, go straight into employment in the private, public or voluntary sector, or continue your studies.

If you chose a career in law, you can do the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) or Legal Practice Course (LPC), which are the traditional routes to becoming a barrister or solicitor.

The course also prepares you for graduate training schemes and other roles where you can use your knowledge and experience of law and criminology. For example, in the police force, probation service or prison service.
