About Law and Criminology, LLB - at University of Sheffield

Criminology has been taught within the School of Law for over 35 years and has an outstanding reputation for both teaching quality and world-leading research in areas such as: policing, victims and restorative justice, crime and politics and the reasons why people stop offending.

This three-year course covers the foundational legal subjects and combines them with a thorough study of the principles of criminology. These include criminal justice, explanations of crime and punishment and other responses to the phenomenon of crime.

The Core Legal and Study Skills module includes an introduction to mooting, employability workshops and study skills sessions.

You can also choose to study abroad in one of 75 world-class partner universities across the globe, providing you with an excellent opportunity to gain an insight into another legal system.
