If you’re talking about a specific module / course at a specific institution, yes. If you are talking about the criminal law in general, or the practice of criminal law, it should be lower case.
So if I said I am interested in the "criminal law" work that you offer it would be written lowercase but saying I have studied "Criminal Law" it is uppercase. My only question is would that not look inconsistent where I've written it both ways in one letter?
If you said, for example, “I enjoyed studying A level law, and in particular the Criminal Law module”, then that would be correct. Or, “I am interested in the Criminal Law course at X university”. But in all other circumstances where you are talking about the practice of criminal law generally, or the study of criminal law generally (ie not a specific module or course), then you should use lower case.
