The Criminal Justice Centre (CJC) provides a forum for research and learning in all aspects of criminal justice. Our members are drawn from both the legal profession and academia. We provide advice and training to the legal profession, governments and judiciaries, author key publications on criminal justice, engage with the media, undertake collaborative research, supervise post-graduate research and regularly host seminars, lectures, workshops and conferences.
In 2015 we have launched a new LLM in Criminal Justice programme.
QMUL is one of the coordinating institutions of the European Criminal Academic Network (ECLAN).
