The Centre for Law, Crime and Justice (CLCJ) builds on the work of the Law School's former Centre for Sentencing Research. Strathclyde Law School has for well over a decade developed a strong and distinctive socio-legal tradition of scholarship. The CLJC brings together expertise in the study of law, crime, criminal justice, as well as inter-disciplinary and cross faculty links with sociology, social work and computer and information science, to mount distinctive postgraduate programmes, to recruit PhD students and to enhance the Centre's capacity for undertaking research. The Centre is well placed to develop synergies with the Law School's Centre for the Study of Human Rights, as well as colleagues in the Centre of Internet Law & Policy; and in Mediation & Conflict Resolution.
The UK's first graduate level course (LLM/MSc/PgDip/Cert) in Criminal Justice and Penal Change will run from September 2012. Blending an understanding of theory with evidence about real world problems, students will study penal innovations, in theory, policy and practice to assist in developing a rational and just response to crime. Enquiries welcome.
