JUST 307. Justice and Crime

The purpose of this course is to provide a critical and interdisciplinary examination of the relationship between justice and criminal behavior. Drawing from social psychology and criminology, this course will examine various conceptions of justice, the implications that (in)justice has for the perpetration of crime and how principles of justice operate in the criminal justice system. In addition, this course will briefly investigate miscarriages of justice and the implications they have for offending behavior. Prerequisite: JUST 200  and one other 200-level JUST course, excluding JUST 225 .
