Law and criminology

Law impacts all of our lives, from domestic issues to social injustices. Be at the forefront of global decision making and play your part in shaping the world around us.

Studying the LLB law or criminology requires students to possess a varied set of skills, which you will build upon as you engage in debate, think analytically and confront challenging perspectives.

The Hertfordshire Law Clinic will give you access to an outstanding £10m law building inclusive of a full-scale replica Crown Court Room to support your learning. We are one of the few providers of legal education in the country with a facility equipped with the latest technology to prepare you for professional practice.

Our law programme (which starts in either September or January) provides pro-bono legal services to the community, enabling you to gain real work experience during your studies. Our work has been recognised and subsequently awarded Best Contribution by a Team of Students and Best Contribution by a Pro Bono Clinic (Law Works Pro Bono Awards, 2022).
