This course provides knowledge on a number of select areas building to a clear understanding of English law and the legal system as a whole. The course addresses the interrelation between law, its application in practice and the purpose of the legal system.
The course assesses the application of the law and the operation of the legal system in different contexts: in relation to people, small companies and large corporations. Additionally, the course presents knowledge on other legal systems, such as that of the US and the Russian Federation.
The course uses psychological and other findings to explain unjust outcomes in the justice process (in criminal and civil justice), such as discrepancies in decision making.
