CRJ 595-606 – Criminal Justice in the United Kingdom

A Faculty-Led Study Abroad Criminal Justice Course in London, England

The course is designed to provide students with a general, theoretical, and practical understanding of the criminal justice system in England. Students will use this knowledge to draw comparisons to the criminal justice system in the United States. At the end of the term, students will travel to London where direct contact with practitioners in the English criminal justice system will occur. At that time, the similarities and differences between the two systems will “come to life.”

We will explore the following areas:

  • The English and their system of government (compared with America)
  • The extent of crime in England and in the United States
  • Law enforcement in both countries (history and modern-day organization)
  • Counter-Terrorism
  • English criminal law, court organization, and criminal procedure (compared with the United States)
  • History of corrections in England, modern-day administration, and types of punishments (compared with corrections in the United States)

There is a strict 10 person limit for this trip. The course is letter graded.
