Study type Taught


Criminal law and criminal justice lie at the heart of questions around how we as a society respond to crime.

On this course, you’ll engage in advanced criminal law theory, as well as criminological theory to examine how societies can better understand and respond to crime.

The LLM draws on expertise from the Department of Sociology, helping you develop an interdisciplinary perspective. You’ll be taught by lecturers whose research shapes the fields of:

  • criminal law theory

  • comparative criminal justice

  • terrorism and international crimes

  • financial crimes

  • human rights and criminal justice

  • hate crime

  • sexual offending

  • policing and restorative justice.

  • The course content reflects their latest insight and research.

Throughout your studies, you’ll have the opportunity to network with professionals, practitioners and activists from around the world. The global perspective you’ll gain will help you formulate critical responses to legal issues. These networks will also be valuable after you graduate.
