ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
Criminal Law is concerned with the most potentially invasive contention of authority by the state: if you fail to comply with the law you will be punished. As crime knows no jurisdictional or geographical boundaries, we need to expand our horizons and not only think domestically but also think internationally. The LLM (Criminal Laws) offers a unique and distinct opportunity to study criminal law in National, international and transnational context. This programme provides a holistic analysis of the criminal process through an analysis of the law, its philosophical underpinnings and its operation in practice in constantly changing environment.
For those wishing to gain in-depth understanding of criminal law and criminal justice, this course offers the opportunity for broader or deeply specialized study within an innovative research. The innovative focus and unique areas of study, allow you to develop your ability to critically appraise the current approaches and contemporary issues relating to criminal law i.e. transnational criminal law, cyber crimes and organized crime, and the challenges these pose. This programme emphasizes more on critical writing instead of traditional classroom teaching.
