Would you like to refine your existing law degree with a specialist master's in criminal justice? Are you looking to advance your career as a solicitor or barrister, or maybe you are looking to change direction from your current undergraduate degree with a master's in the field of law? This master's in law is part of Northumbria University's innovative and flexible LLM Law framework, which will allow you to study for your LLM with a specialism.
The Law (Criminal Justice) LLM branch specialism has been designed to meet the needs of legal practitioners, policy makers and other professionals who currently work, or hope to work in the field of criminal justice.
We also welcome applications from those of you who wish to engage in more detailed, academic study of criminal justice issues than you have previously. You will be provided with a deeper, contextual understanding of the law and the policy issues which affect professional practice.
Our world leading academics will provide you with a critical understanding of contemporary issues in the field of criminal justice. This will include an introduction to criminal justice and forensics and themes around the theory and practice of punishment. This will include youth justice, transnational criminal law and comparative approaches to the law of evidence.
