Modules offered may vary.
As perhaps the best-known aspect of the legal system, the criminal law presents an interesting and challenging area of study.
In the first half of the module we introduce you to the nature of criminal conduct and the basic elements of a crime.
These are placed in the context of some specific offences, namely, criminal damage, murder and manslaughter.
Following on from this, you examine the non-fatal offences against the person and dishonesty offences, and these are used as vehicles to introduce the inchoate offences and the general defences.
This module is assessed by a 2,000-word in-course written assessment worth 30% and a two-hour examination worth 70%.
