This module will enable you to critically examine criminal justice processes in England and Wales. It is an analytical module that builds upon knowledge of substantive criminal law gained at Level 1 and also borrows from other subject areas such as criminology, EU law, the ECHR and the law of evidence. It broadly follows the chronology of criminal justice processes, from arrest to appeal. The module is contextual in the sense that you will examine how criminal justice processes ‘work’ in their legal and social context, rather than simply looking at legal rules.
