Course content

Criminal Justice has long been an important area for study and is still developing fast particularly in the international arena. There is increased worldwide interest in ensuring that criminal justice systems comply with human rights requirements in order to ensure that states’ implementation and enforcement of the criminal law, through investigation, trial and punishment, respect the civil liberties of citizens accused of crime.

The LLM in Criminal Justice at the University of Aberdeen reflects established areas of research strength in the School of Law, and offers options which are both of international and/or comparative relevance and which meet the demand for studying contemporary issues in comparative criminal justice at an advanced level.
