Program Overview

Criminal Law and Criminal Justice offers a unique opportunity for advanced study of criminal law and criminal justice from an interdisciplinary perspective. Taught by academics experienced in criminology and law and researchers from the Institute for Crime and Justice Policy Research (ICPR), this postgraduate degree course provides you with an insight into cutting-edge debates in criminal law and criminal justice grounded within legal, criminological, policy and humanities-oriented perspectives. This course is also distinct in how it offers you the chance, at the end of your studies, to decide whether you would like to receive an LLM or MA, so your chosen award is based on your own needs, career path and area of specialism.

Students on this course are drawn from a range of backgrounds, including those with pre-existing knowledge or experience of criminal law and the criminal justice system, and those with a desire to pursue a specialism in this area. It caters both for those who would like to advance in their existing career and those who want to carve out a new career path.

This MA/LLM Criminal Law and Criminal Justice introduces you to theoretical debates and perspectives that underpin an understanding of the relationship between criminal law and criminal justice. You will be able to tailor the degree to your own interests with option modules and will be supported to pursue your own independent research on a relevant area of your choice.
