Our law, criminology and policing degrees can lead to a range of prestigious careers in London and overseas.
Law students will have access to our mock courtroom, which comes complete with a dock, witness box and a public gallery. You’ll also have the opportunity to take part in mooting competitions. Similar to a debate, this allows you to take part in a simulated court experience and compete with other top law students around the country.
Our graduates have become police officers, criminal lawyers, political campaigners, teachers and more. They’ve been employed in the diplomatic services, governmental organisations such as the European Union and the United Nations, and non-governmental organisations specialising in international development, overseas aid, human rights and environmental fields.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, who was a human rights lawyer before serving as a local councillor and then as a Member of Parliament, is one of our Law LLB graduates.
