Description

Law at Anglia Ruskin provides an excellent all-round education. Combining well with the study of Law, Criminology tackles issues increasingly at the top of the agenda both for policy makers and the media. You will explore the motivations and lifestyles of people who break the law and examine society's responses to lawbreaking. This will give you the opportunity to reflect on some fundamental questions around human behaviour: Why do we create laws? Why do people break them? Why do we respond as we do?

Additional information

Comments: Field trips to Europe and the USA are normally arranged, providing the opportunity to experience criminal justice practice from a range of perspectives.
Career opportunities: Studying law as part of a two-subject degree does not provide exemption from the first stage of training for those seeking to qualify as a solicitor or barrister. The professional bodies may grant partial exemption if the correct number of modules and the necessary subjects are studied. Although of value to anyone seeking to pursue a career within the legal profession, this course is particularly relevant to careers in the National Probation Service, Police Service, Prison Service, Youth Justice, the Home Office, scenes of crime work, the courts, social policy and social work.
