This program offers a flexible approach to the study of law. Studying law in conjunction with another discipline gives students the potential to take an interdisciplinary approach in both their studies and their future employment. Graduates will have a highly developed understanding of the law and its relationship with the principles underpinning criminology e.g. forensic science, the criminal process and the sociology of deviance.

Students must complete core and listed criminology units, as well as core law units, and a selection of law listed or honours units.
