About Criminal Justice at University of Nottingham

Offering a distinctively contextual approach to criminal justice, this course examines the theoretical, comparative and international aspects of criminal process and the penal system.

As well as providing substantive information about criminal law and its enforcement, it enables you to engage with the methodological foundations of research and scholarship, and to appreciate their implications for penal policymaking and practice.

The emphasis is on understanding issues, problems, institutions, processes and cultures of penal law and policy, against a backdrop of ever-increasing globalisation in criminality and law enforcement across national boundaries.

Criminal justice teaching and scholarship in the school is founded on the reputation and achievements of Sir John Smith, one of the greatest academic lawyers of the 20th century. Generations of lawyers across the common law world were first introduced to the subject by Smith and Hogan's Criminal Law.

You will be taught by academics with a high level of expertise in criminal justice who have made a significant impact in the area. We also have a long-running criminal justice discussion group, which meets every semester and gives you the opportunity to attend talks by academics and practitioners on exciting and often controversial topics.

You will also have an opportunity to engage with members of the Criminal Justice Research Centre, which encourages collaborations between researchers and practitioners on the ground. The centre's annual Sir John Smith Lecture on Criminal Law and Justice is an opportunity for you to hear at first hand from a keynote speaker who has pursued a career in criminal justice.
