The Certificate in Criminal Law and Procedure offers you the chance to learn, appreciate and understand the workings of the criminal law system in Scotland. You will work on two distinct areas, Criminal Procedure and Criminal Law, and contemporary issues surrounding them, allowing a unique opportunity to gain valuable knowledge of how criminal law operates within Scotland, by looking at real-life cases and applying these to case study situations.

The course is ideally suited to anyone who has a general interest in law but could also prove invaluable for anyone wishing to eventually pursue a career in which criminal law or procedure is central. The course is run entirely on a distance learning basis, which means you won't need to attend the College. You will need to complete three assessments to successfully pass the course, with support and feedback available from an assigned Law lecturer.
