We want you to have all the information you need to make an informed decision on where and what you want to study. To help you choose the course that’s right for you, we aim to bring to your attention all the important information you may need. Our What You Need to Know page offers detailed information on key areas including contact hours, assessment, optional modules, and additional costs.
† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
We believe that an option to take a year working in a professional practice in a business setting or law firm is a valuable educational opportunity for our students.
This optional year aims to enable students to benefit from working within professional practice for a year exposing students to a wider experience enhancing future employment opportunities and assisting with professional mobility.
This module is optional for students on the Law for Business LLB programme within Lincoln Law School. It is a year long module which enables students to spend a year working in a professional practice of their own choice. Eligible students must have completed their second year of study to a satisfactory standard. During the year spent in professional practice students will attend team meetings with the professional practice manager within the Law School, will attend a meeting with the professional practice manager and their employer and will provide a written portfolio and a presentation about their working experience and finally to complete a feedback form.
There is no additional costs to the student as they are working as employees.
The best way to find out what it is really like to live and learn at Lincoln is to join us for one of our Open Days. Visiting us in person is important and will help you to get a real feel for what it might be like to study here.Book Your Place
Criminologists use theory to understand the causes of crime and the way in which criminal justice agencies respond to offenders.
The rule of law is the cornerstone of any just and fair society, and to be administered correctly it requires knowledgeable legal professionals.
A deeper understanding of the causes and effects of criminal behaviour can enable legal professionals to enhance their practice.
At Lincoln, we strive to make sure our student experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. That is why, in response to the issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been prioritising face-to-face teaching sessions for our new and returning students in areas where they are the most valuable, such as seminars, tutorials, workshops, and lab and practical sessions. Additional online opportunities have been introduced where they support learning and have been shown to be successful and popular with our current students.
Safety remains a key focus. We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance makes this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed.
