About this program

Criminal Law

This course allows you to specialise in an important area of legal practice, giving you a deeper understanding of crime, criminal law and the criminal justice system. As well as developing your legal skills, our strong links with the legal profession and industry ensure practical opportunities for ‘real world’ experiences. If you are passionate about criminal justice, this well-rounded degree is the perfect springboard to launch you into your chosen career.

The course is designed to foster your intellectual independence. You’ll be supported to develop the confidence and skills needed to think critically, to ask and answer cogent questions about law and its role in society, and to effectively communicate your reasoned arguments, orally or in writing.

You will acquire new knowledge and understanding of the principles and values of law and justice, and you’ll learn how law can be used to benefit individuals and societies, including the most marginalised in our community.

During the course you will study fundamental areas of legal knowledge. Not only will you study Criminal Law, but you will also examine subjects such as Public Law where you’ll learn about how the country is organised and run; and Contract Law where you’ll learn about how legal agreements are made and operate between people and companies. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to study topics such as Digital Policing and E-Crime, Crime and the Media and Organised Crime and Counterterrorism.
