  4. The Criminal Justice System: Overview, Agencies and Themes (Semester One - Weeks 1-5) 5 items
    1. Criminal Justice - M Davies, H Croall, J Tyrer

      Book  This book provides a good overview of key concepts and policy issues and therefore relevant for the first five lectures. In particular, for information regarding the models of the criminal justice system, pages 24-29 are useful. In week 4, we will be looking at the entire system, how it operates and which agencies are involved, therefore all of Chapter 1 is relevant but specially the first 10 pages.

    2. Understanding Criminal Justice: A Critical Introduction - Azrini Wahidin, Nicola Carr 2013

      Book  Chapter 2

    3. Want to know more? 3 items
      1. Criminology - Tim Newburn 2017

        Book  Chapters 1, 2 are relevant. You may want to read parts of chapter 2 in particular depending of your existing knowledge of the criminal justice system. Page 15-23 look at the emerging criminal justice system and the police, page 24 onwards looks at the victim and prosecution, the court is considered on page 26 onwards, so this chapter would be useful to gather some knowledge before and after the lecture in week 4.

        Book  Chapters 3 and 4

  5. The Defendant (Weeks 6, 7 and 8) 4 items
    1. Criminal justice: an introduction to crime and the criminal justice system - Joyce, Peter 2006

      Book  Chapters 4-11 include information on the process from the time an individual is arrested right up to how race plays a part in the criminal justice system. You are not expected to read all these chapters, but you may find some of the topics interesting and therefore are welcome to read more. For weeks 1-5, one of the most important areas is the prosecution process and so focusing on chapter five in particular would be useful for the lectures (and in particular lecture 4). If you are attending a court as part of your criminal justice insight, this too is a useful chapter to have a look at. If you are going to the police as part of your criminal justice insight, you may be more inclined to look at chapter four, which is titled 'Policing: control and accountability'.

    2. Criminal procedure and sentencing - Peter Hungerford-Welch 2014

      Book  Chapters 10, 13-15 are all relevant. Like always how much/little reading you do is up to you and depends on how much/little you know about the system already. Chapter 10 looks at Crown court trials and how they are conducted. Chapter 13 looks at sentencing and procedures involved here.
