European Union Security and Transnational Criminal Justice

This programme, the first of its kind in the UK, is delivered by a team of academics with strong links to SIPR and affiliated to UACES and aims to ensure graduates develop a systematic understanding of the law relating to transnational criminal justice and security, with an emphasis on the EU, a critical awareness of current problems in areas of professional practice, and new insights into the field of freedom, security and justice. The syllabus will address EU criminal justice and law enforcement frameworks including Europol and Eurojust. Specialist modules include transnational legal responses to counter terrorism, cyber-crime and the proceeds of crime and the EU perspective on international criminal law. Students progressing to the LLM stage will also be required to submit a dissertation on an agreed topic within the area of freedom, security and justice. This will enable you to develop a sound understanding of the field, required to function effectively at a senior level in a variety of roles in the justice arena within the EU.
