“I like that we’re given lots of opportunities in law to practice for the exam as well as do other things like mock trial competitions, trips and guest speakers.”
Criminology is an incredibly fascinating field of study that weaves aspects of Law, Psychology, and Sociology together. The course examines theories regarding the causes of different types of crime and what makes some people more ‘criminal’ than others. You will discover why certain crimes are underreported and will be given the opportunity to create a campaign for change that increases awareness.
Year 2 will focus more closely on crime and punishment, exploring the purpose of the criminal justice system and how and why we punish crimes. You will learn about the procedures around crime, all the way from the crime scene to the courtroom, and gain an understanding of how the criminal justice system works. You will also be asked to review a criminal case to ensure that it has been tried fairly.
