Foundation in Law

Set your sights high with our Foundation in Law. The University of Plymouth Law School has strong public and private sector connections, and you can decide whether you want to qualify for the legal profession (LLB) or not (BSc). Students who choose a Criminology and Criminal Justice pathway will examine how and why people commit crimes, and how we, as a society, deal with criminality.
