Summer School May 2017

The School of Law is delighted to announce that  its Summer School entitled ‘Terrorism, Crime & Justice’ will run again this year from  the 25th May for three weeks.  The Summer School is part of the University of Limerick’s Summer Schools in Irish Studies. Drawing upon the research expertise in criminal justice in the School of Law, this course is designed to introduce students to the criminal justice system and theories relating to crime and terrorism. Students will learn how the criminal law operates at both practical and theoretical levels, as well as developing an insight into trends and theories on terrorism, one of the most challenging international crimes in contemporary times. The course is divided into three parts. Part 1 introduces the criminal justice system, focusing on how the criminal process operates and how crimes are defined. Part 2 examined theories of crime and justice, illuminating relevant criminological and penological theories. Part 3 considers terrorism and the challenges posed by this particular form of criminal activity. The lectures will be delivered by both staff and PhD candidates from the Centre for Crime, Justice and Victim Studies within the School of Law. The Course Directors of the Summer School are Dr Susan Leahy and Dr. Margaret Fitzgerald-O’Reilly.
