CCJS with law - student societies
University of Plymouth Howard League student group

The University of Plymouth Howard League student group works for reform within the criminal justice system, running events and arranging guest speakers to enhance your understanding of your studies.


The University of Plymouth Criminology and Criminal Justice Society (Crimsoc) runs events throughout the academic year, offering you the chance to expand your knowledge of the criminal justice system and its various agencies through arranging volunteering opportunities, networking and careers events and inviting a range of internationally renowned guest speakers. 

Crimsoc has made a substantial impact on both the University community, winning the New Society of the Year at the UPSU Society Awards, and in the community at large through volunteer and charity work. Crimsoc undertakes work with voluntary sector agencies and has worked with the local police in promoting crime prevention within Plymouth. 

Crimsoc also strengthens your relationship with fellow students with an active online community and regular social events ranging from paintballing to prison visits.

Plymouth Student Law Society

Of all the societies in the University, Plymouth Student Law Society is one of the largest and most vibrant.

The Society has been extremely successful for many years and is an integral part of Plymouth Law School.
