What is law with criminology?
An often fast-paced and far-reaching system of rules designed to ensure equality in society and protect individuals' rights. The legal profession has two different strands, barristers and solicitors, both aiming to secure the best possible outcome for their clients.

Criminology is the study of the many causes and effects of crime. It explores crime, criminality and criminal justice institutions and processes.
