Unit description:

Examines the nature of justice from both a theoretical and a practical point of view. Students have the opportunity to study ancient and contemporary approaches to the concepts of corrective justice, distributive justice, retributive justice and restorative justice, and engage in the current debates over the justification for state responses to wrong-doing, the problem of harm, and the tort-crime debate. The unit relates the academic analysis of justice to the practical problems facing the community and the courts in the areas of tort law and criminal law, using recent cases as a springboard for discussion.
