I have no idea what I want to achieve careers wise, although I think I want to study Law. I have a strong interest in Criminal Law (mainstream I know), but I feel a Criminology degree seems inadequate compared with a Law degree. Would taking a degree in Law with Criminology restrict me from persuing any Law related careers, or does taking Law on its own offer broader career options?
Thanks

You will still study criminal on a normal degree, you may also have the option of studying criminology.
On comparison a joint degree is unlikely to cover all the legal subjects needed for straight law qualifcation, so you may need to do a few extra modules. If you do those, then it wouldnt limit your career. Its only of further use if you intend to a criminal lawyer imo and thats as background.

Law + Criminology only allows you to study Core compulsory law modules. If you want to have a law orientated career in the future you should go with Law on its own.

Hi I applied for both those courses in Lancaster since Law was AAA and Law & Criminology was AAB. The courses in Lancaster were almost identical excpet for about 2 modules each year. I went for Law in the end since it was always my goal but if the criminology aspect of the course appeals then go for that! As long as it's a valid LLB course i dont imagine anyone would discriminate between the courses
