Foundation in Law

Are you ready to make your mark in the legal world? 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). With a strong focus on developing skills in the workplace, we’ll ground you in the fundamentals of law to prepare you for a successful career. 
Students who choose to specialise in Criminology and Criminal Justice will examine how and why people commit crimes, and how we, as a society, deal with criminality.
