Teesside University

Criminal Law

Students can specialise and develop expertise in criminal law; the programme gives flexibility and autonomy to allow students to develop their own areas of interest within the area of criminal law; the link between legal theory and practice is the central theme of the programme and is incorporated into the teaching through a blend of directed and student-centred learning to develop an understanding of methodology, practice and presentation; the research and academic writing skills students develop in taught sessions enable them to prepare and contribute to seminars and group discussions, and to produce the required assessed work appropriate to postgraduate study; students are encouraged to attend and participate in relevant research seminars offered by the research institutes of the University, particularly the Social Futures Institute (SoFI) in the School of Social Sciences & Law.
