Law and Criminology
Research encompasses a wide range of theoretical, methodological and doctrinal approaches in law and the Criminal Justice System. Research strengths converge in several areas, including business law, discrimination law and legal education, with productive interdisciplinary collaborations such as with criminal justice and economics.
The Institute of Criminal Justice Studies (ICJS) is a multi-disciplinary department with an extensive range of research activity, pure and applied. A number of our staff are leading figures in their fields of scholarship. Our researchers work to enhance and develop knowledge and understanding in the broad field of criminal justice and criminological studies, including research into criminology and criminal justice studies, counter fraud, community justice, police, forensics and investigation, security and risk management, and criminal psychology. Research within the field of Law and Criminology may also be closely linked to research within the department of Psychology.
