Course content

This programme provides you with the opportunity to examine current legal aspects of both Criminal Justice and Human Rights in depth, and to gain a deeper understanding of these issues.

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 implementation and enforcement of criminal law, investigation, trial and punishment, respect the civil liberties of citizens accused of crime.

Human Rights is increasingly becoming a subject of both national and international importance, with many countries now endeavouring to ensure that their legal systems embody a full respect for citizens’ human rights and the growth of international protocols, such as that leading to the establishment of the International Criminal Court, those securing the rights of minority populations and indigenous groups, and the creation of international conventions designed to tackle Human Trafficking.
