Bristol, University of the West of England
International and Comparative Criminal Justice
A number of approaches to teaching and learning are taken; this is important for 2 reasons in particular: firstly, criminal justice has been high on the political agenda, both in England and Wales, and in other jurisdictions, for some years; secondly, knowledge of the law concerning crime and criminal procedure provides only a partial understanding of criminal justice and criminal justice processes; many of the modules provide an international perspective, and the award provides the opportunity to undertake a number of modules and electives which are outside of the traditional limits of the field of study.
Honours degree (minimum 2.2) in law (or with law as a significant element of a joint or combined Honours), or in any discipline with at least a merit in the common professional examination (CPE).
Compulsory modules: Research methods; European human rights law and crime (the right to a fair trial); criminal justice process and crime investigation. Plus 3 of the following optional modules: Collective security; gender and crime; international criminal law; issues in criminal evidence; international financial crime.
Combinations of written assignment; oral presentations; 'open-book' examination; and a dissertation.
