Criminal Law emphasis: MLS

The manner in which an individual becomes the “accused,” and the process requisite to the establishment of “criminal liability” are fundamental to the integrity of a just and fair society. The study of criminal law equips students to understand the myriad of agencies charged with enforcing various laws, the rights of suspected or convicted people, societal goals that may be achieved via the punishments meted out to offenders, and how laws differ from state to state and country to country. The Criminal Law emphasis will provide students with valuable expertise regarding how and why the criminal justice system operates the way it does.

  • Police officer
