CRI3102 Indigenous Offenders and Victims
Credit Points: 15

This unit examines the position in the Criminal Justice System of Indigenous people both as victims and offenders.  Students will consider the disparity between the numbers of Indigenous people in the community and their disproportionate numbers in the Criminal Justice System and will attempt to throw light on this imbalance.  They will examine relevant legislation and they will be exposed to current thinking and practices within the three arms of the Criminal Justice System: the Police the Courts and Corrections. As part of this, the students will explore the issues surrounding Indigenous customary practices and laws and the possibility of their inclusion into substantive law.
