Criminal Justice (LLM)


Course Description

As well as providing substantive information about criminal law and its enforcement, the LLM Criminal Justice encourages students to engage with the methodological foundations of research and scholarship, and to appreciate their implications for penal policymaking and practice.

The emphasis is on understanding issues, problems, institutions, processes and cultures of penal law and policy, against a backdrop of ever-increasing globalisation in criminality and law enforcement across national boundaries.

Criminal Justice teaching and scholarship in the school is founded on the reputation and achievements of Sir John Smith, one of the greatest academic lawyers of the 20th century. Generations of lawyers across the common law world were first introduced to the subject by Smith and Hogan's Criminal Law.
