This course includes:
What makes a person “guilty”? How are punishments decided? What is the difference between murder and manslaughter? These are just some of the major questions relating to the study of criminal law that we will attempt to answer throughout this course.
Criminal law is arguably the most well-known area in the study of law – it is certainly the most macabre! It deals with the punishment of crime by the state, the process by which transgressors are tried, judged, and punished according to the law. If you are interested in studying law at university, then this course will give you the chance to explore one of the most important branches of law that you would study as part of a university course.
Encompassing such offences as murder, manslaughter, rape, and grievous bodily harm, this course will introduce you to the main criminal acts that violate the law of England and Wales alongside the key features of a criminal offence. Through a discussion of both legislation and case law, this criminal law course will guide you through the evolution of criminal law in this country and the fundamental principles that underpin it.
