Criminal Justice and Penal Change

The Criminal Justice & Penal Change course examines the range of legal, political and social responses across the world to what is widely known as 'the penal crisis'.
Blending a rigorous understanding of fundamental theory with evidence about real world problems you'll analyse recent innovations in theory, policy and practice. Drawing on a range of disciplinary approaches, the course will enable you to develop a rational and just response to crime. You'll benefit from the work of the Centre for Law, Crime and Justice, which brings together expertise in the study of law, crime, criminal justice as well as interdisciplinary areas between law, sociology, social work, psychology and computer and information science. As well as providing distinctive postgraduate courses and research opportunities, it conducts internationally leading research and helps to shape public policy, discourse and practice.

You can choose to graduate with either an LLM or MSc or complete the course early with a PGDip/Cert.
