This subject adopts a critical perspective on contemporary issues (pornography, stalking, prostitution, illicit drug use, capital punishment), examines the role of the justice system and some more recent alternatives (sentencing circles and family group conferencing), and explores profiles of offenders and offending (domestic violence, cults, white collar crime, Aboriginal violence).
