Criminal Justice research
Here at LJMU, our Criminal Justice department has a distinguished history of being the first of its kind in the UK, and is currently at the forefront of the discipline. Our expert staff are a blend of former practitioners who have previously worked in areas such as drug services, probation, prisons and the police – as well as researchers, all of whom are actively engaged within these fields. We produce research on a wide variety of subjects surrounding the justice system, working closely alongside various partner agencies and organisations to continuously improve the fairness and efficacy of criminal justice practices and processes.
Research is a central and fundamental part of Criminal Justice at LJMU. Our experienced and knowledgeable researchers have the expertise that allow us to produce meaningful work, which ultimately feeds directly into the conceptualisation and design of criminal justice policies and practices. Our team collaborates with local and national partners, as well as working with the Centre for the Study of Crime, Criminalisation and Social Exclusion at LJMU. There is a distinct and specific focus on the concept of ‘justice’ in its widest sense – with three definitive learning streams stemming from this, as below:
