Description

Legal Issues in the New Zealand criminal justice system will introduce students to current and emerging issues in the criminal justice system. It will begin by providing an overview of the complex legal rules which regulate the investigation and prosecution and punishment of criminal offences and offenders. Case studies and contemporary law reform initiatives will be used to provide perspectives on the working of these legal rules as practice, and as tools to discuss the process in which the law might be changed. Students who study this course will be well equipped to understand the nature of the New Zealand criminal justice system.
