Advocacy and Criminal Justice & Penal Change programs start in September

The University of Strathclyde Law School in Glasgow is starting two new LL.M. programs in September 2012: an LL.M. in Advocacy and an LL.M. / M.Sc. in Criminal Justice and Penal Change.

According to the university, the LL.M. in Advocacy program will be "first Masters course of its kind in the UK," and will focus on "major aspects of the discipline from forensic advocacy in criminal and civil law, mediation, as well as the fundamentals of persuasion and negotiation."

The Criminal Justice and Penal Change LL.M. "examines the range of legal, political and social responses across the world to what is widely called 'the penal crisis'." The program can also be taken as an Master of Science (MSc), in which case, the electives taken in the second semester would be different than the LL.M.

Both programs are one year full-time or two years part-time.
