This course is a core or elective course for students enrolled in the Juris Doctor. It introduces students to concepts related to crime and criminology and allows them to acquire an academic understanding of these areas. This foundational course is designed to develop students’ knowledge and comprehension of crime and criminology and apply their learning to contemporary problems.
The course introduces students to the study of crime and criminology with a primary focus on the main theories that inform the discipline of criminology. It considers definitions of crime and examines some theoretical explanations for criminal behaviour. The course further analyses a number of criminological theories, their development over time, and their application to contemporary examples. Also incorporated into the course is an outline of different types of crime and how they are defined, including an examination of how they are measured and understood.
