It's useful to know

One of the bases of the organisation of modern societies is that to prevent and resolve the various conflicts that arise, a series of regulations are established that apply to everyone, leading to what we know as the rule of Law. In the law degree, students study this set of rules known as the legal system. On the other hand, there are certain individual and social conflicts and problems that, if left unresolved, can result in criminal behaviour. Criminology takes an in-depth look at these problems, their causes, the effects on the victims, the criminal acts that are generated, and the functioning of social and state controls, with the aim of preventing them, and, if there is no other solution, looking at the most suitable penal measures. In short, studying both degrees creates professionals who are amply equipped to understand and resolve social conflicts. Prevention and resolution either from a general legal perspective or from the specific field of criminality. Increasingly, societies are looking for highly qualified professionals to prevent, manage and resolve conflicts and risks in a society which is now known as a risk society. Professionals that have the required knowledge and skills, first of all to understand the legal system in general and the criminal phenomenon in particular, and who know how to tackle it, in the best possible way (in terms of effectiveness, but also with respect for human rights and justice and fairness).
