Law options for students from other Schools

You don't have to be a student within the Departments of Law and Criminology to study optional course units in criminology and law. Many of our course units are available as "free options" and every year we have students from business, social sciences and arts subjects studying with us.

Full list of all the law and criminology undergraduate units available can be found on the Faculty of Humanities website. Please check the units for pre-requisites when making your selection:

If you have any questions about the course units offered and whether you might be eligible to select them, see our advice on selecting units via the student self-service system.
