University of Birmingham
Criminal Law and Criminal Justice
Criminal law is concerned with the most potentially invasive assertion of authority by the state: if people fail to comply with the law they are punished; this programme provides a holistic analysis of the criminal process through an analysis of the law, its philosophical underpinnings and its operation in practice.
Applicants should have a good Honours degree in law, or a degree in another discipline augmented with a pass in the Common Professional Examination, or a corresponding level of achievement in the case of applicants from other jurisdictions; applications are welcomed from students whether home- or overseas-based.
Students take 6 taught modules, chosen from a wide range including: British legal responses to terrorism; criminal justice: law enforcement; European criminal law; global crime problems; homicide; human rights and criminal justice; international and European legal responses to terrorism; international criminal law; international humanitarian law; mentally disordered offenders; restorative justice; sentencing: prison studies; theory of criminal law; transnational criminal law; victimisation and victim policy; youth justice; it is also possible to choose some modules from the General LLM programme and from the Political Science and International Studies department.
In addition to completing 6 taught modules, students also complete a 15000-word dissertation.
