Hi, I am looking to take theabove course and wanted some advice on where to go bearing in mind that my grades will most likely be BCCb. However, I do not want to be a lawyer!?! I would ideally want to work for the police or a company in their law dept.
Thanks, Lily x

Im doing Criminology but with Sociology! . . .I don't know if you are aware but you don't even need a degree to join the police! Anybody who is taken on by the police, they look at everyone as equal! You could have PhD's coming out your ears. . yes it looks good but hearing from a police officer, everyone is on the same footing! :/ However it does illustrate though that you have studied for 3years and have commitment . .so there is that aspect to it. As for the best places for LLB Law with Crim :dontknow: . . perhaps do a google search, try and find reviews from past students and go from there.

Thanks, hope your degree is doing well. The police do offer programmes for graduates, so I thought that couldbe an option and I have always wanted to go to Uni and I would like the academic knowledge! x

Yea I only recently knew about police graduate schemes which tbh has become rather appealing to me lately!! :tongue: . . .I graduate this year, so im on the job hunting, career wagon @ the mo. Yea my friend who is a police officer, he did in degree Psychology and his twin did HND in Police studies; both are police officers in the same force! A friend of mine who is a PCSO suggested to me to look into doing Specials? . . She said when they see applicants who have done that for approx. 1year, they love that sort of thing as again it shows you are committed and determined in becoming an officer (if that makes sense). I say definately keep up with the degree but look into Specials or work experience of some kind.

I hope what I am saying is sort of useful, although it's not directed at your LLB Law and Crim question.

Don't go with criminology. Stick with LLB cause most of criminology is like sociology.

OP isn't studying Sociology or is she deciding between LLB Law OR Criminology - LLB Law AND Criminology is one course; joint degree! . .Which is a good choice . . .If my uni offered that I would have done it too.

Yep I agree, even if for some reason I don't end up working in some area of law then it is still an incredibly valuable degree
