Criminal Justice - University of Hertfordshire

Perhaps you would like to study Law, but you want to specialise in Criminal Justice? Then our LLB Criminal Just degree could be for you! The programme provides opportunities for you to understand how criminal justice works as a system, think critically about the genesis of crime, its effects on society and the most effective strategies to fight against it. The course brings the substantive (statutory/written law) and procedural (the 'machinery' to enforce) criminal law together into one programme. The LLB in Criminal Justice is designed to give you a thorough knowledge and understanding of: - How crime is created, its effects on society and the role of modern criminal justice institutions. - The most effective strategies to tackle crime, the ways in which criminality affects the public interest and how the fight against criminality may impact upon individual rights. - How to apply relevant substantive and procedural law and demonstrate relevant career skills, especially skills pertinent to criminal justice professions. - Our degree offers a unique approach to teaching and learning, adopting a flipped classroom model which increases flexibility by providing a permanent online resource to support you and encourage your learning journey. By studying with us, you'll be able to develop skills such as legal drafting (contractual clauses, defence statements), and advocacy (interim and junction applications) alongside developing your knowledge in the foundations of law.
