Program Overview

Our LLM in Criminal Law and Criminal Justice aims to deepen your understanding of criminal law and the processes of criminal justice, whilst you explore the impact of crime and how laws are implemented to deter and resolve crime within society. This includes areas such as youth justice, mental health, modern slavery, trafficking, sexual offences, terrorism and drug offences.

On this programme, you will evaluate criminal law and criminal justice with the support of research evidence, methods and theories, as you consider the impact of responses to crime. With this understanding, you will demonstrate your academic knowledge and professional practice, experimenting with your expertise in criminal law and criminal justice.

You will further develop your critical thinking skills and research practice through the critical analysis of case and statutory law, as well as policies and processes. Key areas of study include the critical analysis and understanding of contemporary issues in criminal law and criminal justice; the socio-legal analysis of mental health and sexual conduct in a criminal law and criminal justice context; and how institutions operate in combatting crime through a socio-legal perspective.
