Overview

Criminology deals with issues that are constantly in the media and attract much public interest. Given the impact of globalising processes on crime and on society more generally in the contemporary era, the Department of Law has identified the need for a programme to deepen engagement with the global across a wide range of criminological and criminal justice issues. The PG Diploma in Comparative Criminology and Criminal Justice has been developed to address this need.

At a time of global links at the level of crime threats and criminal justice responses, our view of criminal justice systems as comprising distinct national jurisdictions comes increasingly under challenge. With this increasing cosmopolitanism comes a need to examine a broad range of criminological and criminal justice issues from an internationally comparative perspective. This is what the PG Diploma programme aims to do through the unique combination of generic modules in qualitative and quantitative research methods together with theoretical awareness of key issues in comparative criminology such as the aims of comparison, the different schools of thought on comparative criminological research and the impact of globalisation.

Course Structure

Part-time students complete 30 taught credits each year.

Not all modules offered will run every year; offerings are dependent upon demand and other potential constraints. Outside of a small number of compulsory modules, students may choose any combination of modules they wish.

Overview

The LLM (International Justice) provides students with critical insights into the international legal system and how it operates to promote and secure justice. It analyses how the international legal order works and how it seeks to protect vulnerable groups, including minorities, migrants and peoples with disabilities. The programme draws on law and other disciplines, including sociology, anthropology and politics, to provide students with a comprehensive examination of the challenges facing international justice mechanisms today.

Work placement opportunities are available as part of the programme with partner civil society organisations including the Irish Council for Civil Liberties, Transparency International, the Irish Penal Reform Trust, Trócaire and Oxfam.

Teaching is delivered by means of small class lectures, in-class simulations and workshops. Students will also benefit from guest lectures delivered by international speakers. The programme is very attractive to law graduates who wish to specialise in the fields of international law and human rights, and to non-law graduates who are interested in questions of social justice and in acquiring legal tools and skills for future careers.

 “The LLM in International Justice is an excellent programme for anyone with an interest in the areas of justice and human

rights. The modules are engaging and extremely interesting, and are delivered in small classroom settings by lecturers who are genuinely interested in their students. Although the LLM has a strong legal component, is it extremely accessible to non-law graduates, of which I am one. I would highly recommend the programme, and indeed Maynooth

University, to anyone with an interest in this area of study.”
