Introduction

Major Studies: The administration of justice faces greater challenges today than ever before. This program will equip students with an understanding of the justice system; its structure, concepts and underlying principles. It will introduce them to the issues that arise in developing, managing and administering policy in justice environments and equip them with the tools to undertake those tasks successfully.

This multi-disciplinary course will draw on expertise from the fields of judicial administration, sociology, criminal law, human rights, management, communications, psychology, human resources, and government studies. It will highlight contemporary issues and innovations in the justice sector and provide students with the opportunity to undertake at least one industry-based work placement. The availability of electives in the course allows students to specialise in issues that are most relevant to them, such as judicial administration in the civil law jurisdiction and family law, as well as criminal justice issues. There will be the opportunity to undertake combined degree programs, such as Justice Studies/Forensics and Justice Studies/Law.

Career opportunities: The course will equip students with the tools to work in many aspects of the justice sector, including policy development and administration, court administration, law enforcement and security, corrective services, criminological research, community legal centres and law reform bodies.
