**Overview**

Our LLB (Hons) Law with Forensic Psychology degree provides you with legal knowledge in fundamental subject areas and enables you to develop both practical legal skills and transferable professional skills. Law degrees are highly valued by a wide range of prospective employers. If you decide to pursue a career as a solicitor, the LLB will provide you with a solid grounding for your future preparation for Stage 1 of the Solicitors Qualification Examination (which is required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority). Should you choose to become a barrister, the LLB will also provide a solid foundation for your potential future studies on the Bar Professional Training Course (as required by the Bar Standards Board).

This course combines a strong foundation in core principles of law and forensic psychology, including criminal law. You'll also study forensic psychology modules, exploring the tangled web of influences that lead to a criminal act.

**Key Features**

- Enables lawyers to explore related areas of forensic psychology

- Blended theoretical & practical approach brings Law to life

- Professional volunteering opportunities develop your knowledge of how Law operates in the real world and benefit the local community

- Supportive, encouraging environment
