Course Summary

The Criminal Justice LLM is designed for those with an academic or professional interest in law, crime and criminal justice. It enables students to understand the practical operation of criminal justice and how the state responds to criminality and victimisation. This degree will be of considerable relevance and interest to those who are already employed in criminal justice-related work in fields such as legal practice, government, non-governmental organisations, as well as equipping those who have just completed undergraduate degrees to develop the knowledge and skills to pursue criminal justice-related careers. The LLM Criminal Justice programme is international in focus and taught by leading academics and practitioners in the field. Research and teaching is carried out under the auspices of the Institute of Criminology and Criminal Justice (ICCJ), which has strong connections to civil society organisations, criminal justice bodies and agencies, and international institutions and networks.

Some Criminal Justice graduates use this degree as a base for further study towards a research degree such as a PhD, which may in turn lead to an academic career. Others pursue criminal justice-related or legal careers in the public, private or voluntary sectors. Furthermore, this Masters provides an excellent base for further study towards a research degree such as a PhD, which in turn may lead on to an academic career. Queen's postgraduates reap exceptional benefits. Unique initiatives, such as Degree Plus and Researcher Plus bolster our commitment to employability, while innovative leadership and executive programmes alongside sterling integration with business experts helps our students gain key leadership positions both nationally and internationally.
