Summary

Security is a major contemporary preoccupation; criminal law and criminal justice are key responses. This postgraduate degree in criminal law and criminal justice offers an exciting, challenging and distinctive opportunity to explore and develop new critical perspectives on major contemporary national and international debates. It is ideal for legal and criminal justice professionals and practitioners.

The central focus of this multidisciplinary programme is the interface between criminal law and criminal justice. In addition to studying established critical and theoretical perspectives, the programme also has a humanities focus, which offers an opportunity to explore and engage with cutting-edge scholarship in the subject.

The programme is delivered by staff from the School of Law and its Institute for Crime and Justice Policy Research, and a range of visiting international scholars and practitioners.
