The Brunel Law with Criminal Justice LLB gives students the opportunity to earn a law degree with specialist knowledge in the field of criminal law and criminal justice.
  • Along with the requirements of the traditional LLB degree you’ll learn substantive criminal law and how the criminal justice system works in practice and procedure.
  • Importantly, you’ll be encouraged to use this knowledge to think critically about crime: its origins, its impact on society and the most effective strategies to combat it.
  • We offer two study options. You can choose three years full-time, or four years full-time with a one-year professional placement that will give you hands-on experience in a legal practice.
  • All of our students have careers advisers with whom you can discuss career ideas with and who can offer guidance on placements and further study options throughout the duration of your time with us.
  • The solicitors qualification route will change from 1 September 2021. To qualify as a solicitor you will need a degree and to pass the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE), Parts 1 and 2. All Brunel LLBs provide a solid grounding in the core legal subjects aspiring solicitors need to know. There will be a transitional period applicable to students who have completed, started, accepted an offer of a place or paid a non-refundable deposit by 21 September 2021 (inclusive) for a qualifying law degree (QLD). These students will have the option of taking either the 'QLD route' or the 'SQE route'. Brunel Law with Criminal Justice LLB is a QLD for these purposes. To qualify as a barrister you will need a law degree which covers the foundations of legal knowledge subjects, which this Brunel LLB does.
