About this Unit
Advanced Criminal Law is a unit designed to extend your knowledge beyond that of the core academic and practical topics of the LLB unit Criminal Law. This will be achieved by examining the deeper philosophical issues that demand that the criminal law meet the requirements of fairness and justice. You will be given the opportunity to extend your knowledge of the mechanics of the criminal law by an examination of the philosophy of criminal law. You will consider the moral limits of punishment and criminalisation, and examine the philosophical basis for criminal responsibility. This subject is designed to get you to think at a high level. It requires you to think about what the law ought to be, rather than merely about what it is.
