Criminal law and justice

The Criminal Law and Justice research stream involves theoretical, historical and contextual approaches to the study of criminal law. Our academics adopt a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives, including the histories and philosophies of criminal law, trials and pre-trial procedures, psychology and crime and contemporary developments in both domestic and international criminal law and procedure.
