Crime, justice and the workings of the law are matters that affect us all and often dominate the news. This degree takes a critical and analytical view of the role and functions of the legal system, and examines its relationship with crime. You’ll explore issues such as the role and place of law in modern society, processes of criminalisation, violence, anti-social behaviour, and inequality, as well as global threats from cyber-crime, terrorism and human rights violations, and their implications for justice.
