Module overview

In this module you will develop an understanding of the England and Wales criminal justice system, with a particular focus on its philosophies, institutional practices and processes and outcomes. You will gain an understanding of how the criminal justice system attempts to uphold the rule of law, deter criminal behaviour, promote law abiding behaviour and sanction those who violate laws through criminal penalties. Consideration will also be given to due process protections against abuse of policing and prosecution powers.
