2 INTRODUCTION Welcome to the Centre of Criminal Justice Studies. We very much hope that your time with us will be rewarding. We are here to help you get as much out of your studies as possible. You are studying in one of the foremost criminal justice centres in the country and we aim to make you feel part of our community of scholars. The Centre for Criminal Justice Studies holds regular events, seminars and conferences to which you will be invited and you are strongly encouraged to attend. As well as the present document, please also read the University of Leeds - Taught Student Guide an electronic copy is available at the website This document contains information about many general aspects of the University and your studies. We advise you to read this in conjunction with the (School of Law) Taught Postgraduate Handbook as they cover many matters that are not dealt with in this Programme Outline. Please also ensure that you read the additional and separate handbook entitled Code of Practice for Assessment. This provides important information on how you will be assessed, extensions, late submission, classification, appeals and mitigation. An electronic copy of the Code can be found on the Universities VLE site Blackboard, under My Organisations/ Law/ Taught Postgraduate/ Assessment Information which can be accessed via the Portal. You are always welcome to ask any member of staff, whom you think may be able to help you, for information or advice. However, as a first port of call, we would suggest that you contact your Programme Director for academic matters and the Student Education Office (Ground Floor, The Liberty Building) for administrative matters. If you need information provided in a format which differs from the usual published means you are advised to consult the University's Equality Unit (see Section E) so that an assessment can be made of the best means by which you should receive information and arrangements made with the relevant offices for you to receive the information in that format.

4 The Academic Year The taught postgraduate academic year is comprised of two semesters. Each comprises an 11 week teaching period, followed in the case of full time students by a period for completing a dissertation on a topic agreed with a supervisor. The dates for the semesters in the academic year are: Semester 1: Introductory week 19 September 23 September 2011 Teaching 26 September 9 December 2011 Examination Period 9 January January 2012 Semester 2: Teaching 23 January 16 March 2012 ********Easter break********** 16 April 4 May 2012 Examination Period 14 May May 2012 NB There is no vacation during the summer months. You are required to complete your dissertation between the end of teaching in May and the beginning of September 2012 and therefore are expected to remain in Leeds to complete this work. The submission date for your dissertation is Monday 3 rd September Page 4

5 YOUR PROGRAMME Teaching methods Most modules are taught by way of seminars. Often these take place on a weekly or fortnightly basis. Teaching and learning practice will vary between modules but you will always be required to prepare for seminars as directed by module leaders. Do not however expect the seminars to provide a foundation in a subject in the same way as a series of undergraduate lectures: you must work independently at postgraduate level to a much greater extent than at undergraduate level. Some of the subjects may be taught by more formal lectures, but with seminars in addition. For some subjects, especially optional ones, you may be in a class alongside students from other programmes. For your dissertation, you will be assigned a member of staff who will arrange supervision meetings. They will provide support and guidance throughout the research process, help you to develop a research proposal and any research instruments and provide feedback on written work. In addition to the teaching programme, you are strongly encouraged to attend the seminar programme held by the Centre for Criminal Justice Studies. These public seminars take place at 5pm on selected Tuesdays throughout the academic year. Please look out for s publicising the date when seminars will take place. The Centre for Criminal Justice Studies organises major lecture events. The Frank Dawtry Lecture 2011 will be given by Abby Peterson from the University of Gothenberg on Tuesday 11 th October at 5pm. The CCJS Annual Lecture 2011 will be announced shortly. Academic and personal support Mr. Stuart Lister is the programme manager for all MA programmes. You will also be allocated a personal tutor. Your personal tutor is a source of both academic and pastoral support. They are responsible for monitoring your progress and helping you to overcome any difficulties which are affecting your academic work. Should you experience any problems which may affect your studies; for example, illness, accommodation difficulties etc, you should contact your personal tutor in the first instance. Personal tutors may also be able to give you advice and information on many other academic and non-academic matters (for example, careers, study skills and so Page 5

6 on). If they are unable to help, they can often refer you to appropriate sources of help within the University. The personal tutor may also assist with enquiries about your progress from Central Student Administration, write academic and employment references and speak on your behalf at examination boards. During the course of your studies you will meet different members of staff. Students are always welcome to approach any member of staff who they think may be able to help them. For example, if you are considering applying for a PhD, you should talk to a member of the course team about your plans. Module convenors are the best people to approach if you have specific queries about a module. THE SYLLABUS AND ASSESSMENT Programme aims The MA programmes draw upon a range of disciplines including Law, Sociology and Social Policy. They combine the study of criminological explanations of crime with the study of the nature, role, delivery and outcomes of criminal justice policies and processes as well as providing the knowledge and skills to undertake rigorous criminological research. Within this framework, our broad aims are as follows: to provide a conducive atmosphere for postgraduate study within the context of a research-based institution; to facilitate rigorous understanding of and discussion about explanations of crime and the nature, role, theoretical and ideological underpinnings, delivery and outcomes of criminal justice policies and processes; to acquaint students with relevant bodies of established knowledge and the latest research findings, and develop an awareness of the interconnections between theory, research, policy and practice; to develop students critical awareness of social science research methods and techniques and their theoretical underpinnings; and to develop students ability to translate awareness and understanding of social science research methods and techniques into practice. It is essential, therefore, that you have an understanding of theoretical perspectives, Page 6

7 current policy debates, the processes by which criminal justice is delivered and research techniques by which theories can be tested, processes measured and policies evaluated. Accordingly, we have adopted a core of compulsory subjects for each of the five MA programmes. These core modules provide the foundation of the student learning experience, which can then be built upon by way of optional subjects. These options reflect staff expertise and allow for a deeper understanding of specific areas of covered in core modules (except for those undertaking the MA in Criminological Research for which there are no options). All MA programmes culminate in a dissertation, which is designed to build up specialist knowledge and to exercise newly acquired research skills. On successful completion of the programme students should be able to: demonstrate advanced knowledge in the fields of criminal justice and/or criminology; integrate multi-disciplinary approaches to the study of criminology and criminal justice; understand different research methods and their applications appropriate to the field which may serve (i) as a basis for specific research projects or (ii) to enhance understanding of existing research findings; demonstrate applied research skills through completing a dissertation; display personal skills, especially presentational, debating and group work skills, and exhibit transferable skills, including IT based ones, that will lead to professional and vocational advancement. Studying at a postgraduate level Most of you will have a first degree of some kind. The skills and competencies you are seeking to develop are described above. Broadly speaking, the following differences might be noted between the postgraduate and undergraduate experience. First, the pass mark for each module is higher at 50 per cent. Second, in each module you will be required to do a substantial quantity of assessed coursework and almost all modules are assessed only through coursework. This Page 7

8 reflects our desire to develop and test skills in relation to research, reasoning, writing, presentation and group work to a much greater extent than is common with undergraduate degrees. Third, the MA programmes require students to complete a 60 credit dissertation of 15,000 words. This is not meant to be the equivalent of an original PhD thesis in terms of the standard of work expected, but clearly it demands many of the skills required of a research student. Assessed work All assessed work must be word processed. We expect your assessments to be presented in an appropriate academic manner with accurate referencing in the main body of the assessment. Please see the instructions which accompany your essay questions for further information. Most criminology and criminal justice texts and journals use the Harvard referencing system and the majority of the staff who teach you will use this system in their own work. You are not obliged to use the Harvard system and are welcome to use the system you are familiar with. Take care not to mix referencing systems, but be consistent in using the system you choose. Further information about referencing can be found on the library webpages: Programme credits Students are required to pass 180 credits of modules in order to gain a Master s degree. All Master s modules apart from the Dissertation module are worth either 15 or 30 credits (the Dissertation module is worth 60 credits). This means that you must take 120 credits of taught modules, plus a dissertation, in order to complete the programme. All the MA programmes (except the MA Criminological Research) are structured such that students take 150 credits of core modules (i.e. required modules), leaving you to choose 30 credits of optional modules (to be chosen from a specified list). We recommend that you attempt 60 credits in Semester 1 and 60 credits in Semester 2, leaving your dissertation (60 credits) for the summer months. However, we will allow the following combinations: 75:45:60 or 60:60:60 but no other combination is acceptable. Students enrolled on the MA Criminological Research must take 150 credits of core modules so do not have the option to register for optional modules. Page 8

14 Modules Details of modules which are core to at least one of the MA programmes are provided below. For further information about optional modules, please look at the postgraduate module catalogue on Campusweb - LAW5010M Criminal Justice Processes (30M Credits - Semester 1: Compulsory for MA Criminal Justice Studies; MA in Criminal Justice Studies and Policing): Aims to demonstrate to the student the complex and dynamic nature of criminal justice processes and the relationships that can exist between them. More specifically the module will enable students to understand the problematic nature of criminal justice, the differential impact of the criminal justice process on specific social groups, the criminal justice processes which make up the criminal justice system and the rights and experiences of individuals caught within specific criminal justice processes. Teaching is seminar based Assessment is by two assignments of 4,500 words (and a 500 word reflective abstract for each). LAW5021M Researching Crime and Justice (30M Credits - Semesters 1and 2: Compulsory for all MA programmes): Aims to provide students with an understanding of the research methods and skills necessary for conducting empirical research within the fields of criminal justice studies and criminology. The module will provide a supportive and developmental environment to enable students to understand and make appropriate choices between different research strategies. The module will also encourage students to develop acceptable methods of presentation and will facilitate the development of research skills students need to carry out their dissertation. Teaching is seminar based. Assessment is by three assignments of 3,000 words. LAW5030M Criminal Justice Policies, Perspectives and Research (30M Credits - Semester 1: Compulsory for MA Criminology, MA Criminal Justice Studies and MA in Criminological Research): Aims to offers a broad disciplinary engagement with the development of criminal justice policies at a local, national and global level. It draws in particular on sociological, social Page 14

15 policy and socio-legal perspectives. The main thrust of the module is investigating the complex inter-relationships between theory, policy and practice in the field of criminal justice. Students are encouraged to evaluate different sources of knowledge about crime ranging from lay knowledge through to crime statistics and empirical research studies. Particular attention will be paid to the role of academic research in shaping and evaluating criminal justice policies. They will be expected to reflect upon whether criminological research carried out in other jurisdictions can inform policy developments in England and Wales. Teaching is seminar based. Assessment is by two assignments of 5,000 words. LAW5110M Policing 1: The nature of contemporary policing (15M Credits - Semester 1: Compulsory for MA Criminal Justice Studies and Policing): Explores the police in England and Wales, with special reference to their legal, political, social and cultural implications. It enables students to develop analytical, research and communications skills with reference to policing issues. The module looks at the historical development of the police in the UK, since their inception in 1829, exploring the organisational structure, and delivery styles of contemporary policing. It then proceeds to explore the specific nature of operational policing, police powers and their use in practice, emphasising the crucial function of discretion in the way policing is enacted on the streets as well as rehearsing debates over the role of culture in shaping police discretion. Teaching is lecture and seminar based Assessment is by one assignment of 4,500 words LAW5185M Theories of Crime, Justice and Control (30M Credits Semester 1: Compulsory for MA Criminology and MA Criminological Research) Aims to provide students with opportunities to gain a critical understanding of some of the most important social theories that seek to explain trends and developments in crime, justice and control. It considers the insights provided by, and the impact of, theoretical resources drawn from a number of key disciplines across the social sciences in understanding crime and responses to it. Through a number of examples the course explores the manner in which key theoretical ideas, concepts and perspectives: (i) influence policies, practices and claims to knowledge; and (ii) provide insights into Page 15

16 contemporary social trends and changes in crime control and criminal justice. Key ideas are studied in terms of their emergence, explanatory value, normative implications and impact. In particular, the course explores the complex relationship between ideas, policy decisions, practical tools and outcomes as derived from research findings. The course will enable students to assess theoretical claims in an informed, critical and reflexive manner and assist students to deploy concepts and assess theoretical claims in their own studies. Teaching is seminar based. Assessment is by two assignments of 4,500 words and a 500 word abstract for each. LAW5210M Policing 2: Accountability of Policing (15M Credits - Semester 2: Compulsory for MA in Criminal Justice Studies and Policing): Explores the relationships between policing institutions and formal central/local governmental bodies. It also explores the relationships between public policing institutions and private as well as municipal forms of policing. More specifically, this module seeks to explain the centrality of accountability debates within democratic policing. It does so by exploring the issue of police accountability in two distinct ways. First, it considers accountability at the micro level with regard to individual complaints and civil actions. Second, it explores the meaning of police accountability at a macro or institutional level, looking at the meanings of accountability and legal frameworks, the dynamics of Home Office relations and agendas and formal and informal relations between the police and local communities. Teaching is lecture based and is complemented by seminars. Assessment is by one 4,500 words essay LAW5145M International Criminal Justice 15M Credits Semester 1: Compulsory for MA International and Comparative Criminal Justice) Explores the growing internationalisation of criminal justice by examining the connection between transnational crime, global crime control and international conflicts. In the context of governance the module interrogates the infrastructure and processes that are being developed to regulate global insecurities and criminal harms. It will explore the development of various institutions in response to international crimes and their relation Page 16

17 to international human rights and access to justice. It will consider the different paradigms of justice that inform diverse international developments, notably contrasts between retributive and restorative justice. The course will explore tensions and conflicts between nation-state based criminal justice and international norms, processes and procedures for regulating crime. It will assess the extent to which a distinct international criminal justice order is being established, the nature of its jurisprudence and values and its implications. Teaching is seminar based Assessment is by two 4,500 word essays. Students will also be required to make a seminar presentation. LAW5385M Transnational Crime (15M Credits Semester 1: Compulsory for MA International and Comparative Criminal Justice) This module introduces students to transnational crime, its development, and responses to transnational crime, and will situate this in the wider framework of processes of globalisation. It will encourage students to widen their horizon through developing international perspectives on crime and justice, and to critically assess and analyse the impact of globalisation on transnational crime; it will provide students with the necessary theoretical and methodological tools to analyse the situation for specific transnational crimes, and situate their own country in its regional and global context by drawing on a wide range of sources and geo-political contexts. It advances knowledge, understanding and use of international and national data sets, and critically reflects upon a range of materials, including case-studies, data bases, websites and theoretical work, both verbally and in writing Teaching is seminar based Assessment will be by a 4,500 word case study/country report and a 4,500 word essay. Students will be required to make a seminar presentation. LAW5040M: Dissertation (60M Credits Summer: Compulsory for all MA programmes). You are expected to attend a meeting regarding your dissertation in December 2010, time and place will be circulated via nearer the time. At this meeting you will be provided with a separate handbook about dissertations. Page 17

18 INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMISSION OF THE DISSERTATION You are required to submit a printed/paper copy of your dissertation IN ADDITION to the electronic version, which should be uploaded to the VLE as normal. Both should be submitted on or before the due date as indicated. Attach an Evaluation Proforma (available from the Taught Postgraduate Common Room) to the paper copy of your dissertation Place the paper copy in the mail box located at the main Student Education Desk in the Liberty Building before the given deadline. Essays and dissertations which are submitted after the deadline will be penalised in accordance with School of Law rules. (These rules can be found in the Code of Practice). It is therefore vital that, if there is, or is likely to be, a problem in submitting the essay or dissertation on time, you contact Lindsey Joynson IN GOOD TIME to seek an extension. Where good reason exists for a late submission, an extension will be granted. Your attention is especially drawn to the University rules on plagiarism. Plagiarism is a serious academic offence and will result in severe penalties. It is essential that your assessed essay represents your own work and that it has not been produced in collusion with any other party or submitted for more than one assignment. Ideas derived from written sources must be acknowledged by way of an appropriate citation. If you are not aware of the University's rules on plagiarism, please familiarise yourself with the information provided in the Code of Practice. Students are also asked to upload their essay onto the Turnitin website to allow the essay to be checked electronically for plagiarism. You will be provided with further details on how to upload your essay prior to the deadline of your first assignment. Draft Essay Exercise During semester one, all taught postgraduates have opportunity to submit ONE draft essay usually on the chosen topic for the assessment for a compulsory module. Page 18

19 The purpose of submitting a draft essay is to receive feedback from your tutors in relation to structure and argument, academic writing style and acceptable referencing standards and citation, however there will not be feedback on content. Your draft essay, with written feedback, will be returned to you within three weeks of the submission of the draft. Any student with problematic work will be contacted directly by the tutors and required to attend an informal face-to-face meeting to discuss any issues arising, such as inadequate referencing or plagiarism.
