What is the difference between Criminal law, Criminal justice and Criminology? Watch
I expect there is a considerable amount of overlap between them.
Law will focus on law and the legal aspects.
Criminal justice will focus on the criminal justice system.
Criminology also takes in elements that look at penology, reform and sociological aspects.
All three would have the potential for overlap , so best imo to compare the course structures and modules of each.
You can do a degree in criminology.
Hence, you should start by asking yourself whether you wanna do a full LLB in law (in which any criminally-related modules will form a minority, with the majority of modules being civil-law-related - contract, tort, trusts, land), or a BA in Criminology.
