I want to study law with criminology at uni but does this specific course require a lot of reading compared to other law courses as I don't really get along with reading and is the course difficult overall?

All law courses have a lot of reading regardless. If you don’t like reading, I would recommend not doing any Law courses, any Arts/Humanities, and etc.

Just to re iterate with the above.

If you want to know more and gain a deeper knowledge of the law, you have to read far and wide. If you want to try fully understanding principles and reasoning, you have to read case judgements. You have to love reading if you want to do well. Just for example, topics like land law require lots of reading and it's very dry and quite frankly boring to most students.

Even if you dont love reading at first you'll learn to like it if you enjoy what your studying. Regarding the difficulty of doing a law course, its not that hard, however I work really hard and also I have a ''love'' for it. If you enjoy what you do then you'll be more inclined to want to know more and work hard which will lead you to being successful or being more successful than if you didnt enjoy it.

Yes, there's a ton of reading. To be honest, there's probably not that much difference between the amount of reading material between the course you're interested in and a general LL.B at a comparable uni.

I studied a few criminology modules at LL.M. level and the reading for these modules was significantly heavier than for the law modules. That could have been just my uni though. On the flip side, the content was much easier to digest.

Why spend £27000 plus on a Mickey mouse course. There are no jobs in criminology. And don't be so offensive please.
There are jobs in criminology, for example if you want to go into offender management. There are jobs in academia. There are obviously the general grad schemes which do not require a specific degree.

And you found A-Level criminology to be utterly fascinating.

So you wanted to do law, changed your mind, and decided crim. Weren't you the one saying that crim students are not all failed law students?

I am not trying to take the piss, just pointing out you're being a **** because you had your feelings hurt.
I didn’t do a level criminology lmfao
The only reason I decided not to pursue law is bc I don’t want to be a lawyer I’d rather work in counter-terrorism or the police it’s not that deep.

where did I say that?
Your feelings are obviously clearly hurt as you’re a law student haha
Law would have been better prep than criminology for CT work, in most cases. CT law can be rather complex for an officer and there is expected a great deal of familiarity. And in the posts which were deleted.
