LLB (Hons) with Foundation Year

Course Overview

The Introduction to Forensic and Criminal Investigation professional certificate course will immerse you in the law enforcement and forensic investigative processes using state-of-the-art technology, giving you valuable practical insight into real-life criminal investigations. This short introductory course consists of four modules that build off one another, taking you through the entirety of crime scene investigation in a logical and intelligible sequence. Beginning at the point of criminal activity and the scene of the crime, the course will guide you through the investigative process of suspect identification, arrest, interview, and providing expert witness testimony in court. Through the use of an immersive learning environment, you will be able to translate these theoretical principles to a range of real-world scenarios, giving you keen insight into the practical underpinnings of the investigative process. From this virtual world you will gain an awareness of the natural progress of criminal investigation, including the steps and communication strategies involved in each phase. Our LLB foundation course covers the key pillars of legal knowledge and takes you through the fundamentals of English Law and the legal system. Studying this course will enable you to acquire the knowledge and practical legal skills needed to succeed in a range of legal and non-legal sectors. You’ll start gathering the knowledge required for the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE 1), as well as taking an important step towards a Bar Practice Course if you wish to qualify as a barrister in the future. If this sounds like the course for you, all you need to get started is the drive and commitment to do your very best – and we’ll be here to support you the rest of the way.
