This module is designed to follow on from LAW1XXXC ‘Criminal Law: Foundations’, giving you the

space and opportunity to practice using criminal law to specialize within the subject and to understand the laws of England within a comparative legal context. By the end of the module you should be able to approach questions of criminality from your understanding of the principles of criminal law and your experience of applying those principles to an area of specialism within criminal law, in this case corporate criminal liability. During this module you will learn how to learn how complete legal research to analyse the law and its operation critically at a foundational level. You will also learn to plan, structure and write  undertake your own small research project on corporate and organisational criminal responsibility. 


This module is one of the seven foundations of legal knowledge required by the Bar Standards Board and it is therefore compulsory for all who wish to progress onto the vocational stage of training to become a barrister. Students interested in becoming solicitors under the Solicitors Qualifying Examination route should also take this module.
