About the course
Why do people commit crimes? How can society deal with it and where does law come into it? This combined programme gives you the opportunity to complete a qualifying law degree while also developing an understanding of aspects of criminology and criminal justice. This hands-on programme allows you to put your theory into practice, engaging with real-world problems and case studies. In the final year, students can take the Law Clinic module and gain mentored work experience, providing legal advice to real clients. You can also choose to spend an extra year studying abroad at one of our partner universities in Europe, enhancing your learning from an international perspective.
Studying at Hull gives you the opportunity to get involved in a wealth of extracurricular activities to boost your employability. The Student Law Society runs an extensive programme of competitions in mooting, negotiating and client interviewing. Hull pioneered the study of Criminology more than 30 years ago, and we’ve built strong links with local, regional and national criminal justice agencies, opening up opportunities for work experience, work placements and job opportunities.
