Syllabus:

This is a foundation course in Criminology, which explores the various institutions, practices and procedures of the criminal justice system in Australia, as well as the range of theoretical, practical and philosophical challenges faced in achieving 'justice'. As students will learn throughout the semester, the criminal justice process involves many tensions between the roles of the police, courts and corrections, as well as how the imposition of punishment affects various groups in the community, including offenders, victims, families and the wider public. While the first half of the course briefly introduces students to the mechanics of how the criminal justice system in Australia operates, the second half will also hope to encourage them to think critically about the aims, processes and failings of various components of that system. Specifically, the course outlines the major characteristics of the investigation, prosecution, adjudication and correctional processes within the criminal justice system, and examines the key issues, which impinge on contemporary criminal justice administration in Australia, focusing on key theories and philosophies. The course ultimately adopts an interdisciplinary approach to the study of criminal justice institutions and practices, and critically assesses the effectiveness of the system using contemporary criminological and sociological evidence.
