Throughout this study programme, participants will be guided through the most salient aspects of one of the most unique of all fields of law. Criminal legislation is one of the most essential cornerstones of society, ensuring security within a specific jurisdiction and, at times, across borders.
What types of offences exist and what may ultimately constitute such an offence. A main understanding of several offences will be drawn, whilst also analysing concepts of penalties which go along with them. Participants will therefore gain a basic yet thorough outlook of the very principles the Criminal Code aims to safeguard within Maltese society, and how the judiciary attempts to interpret and apply the offence contemplated within it.
Training will be provided through 7 lectures of 3 hours each, held in-class. The course will be interactive, where participants are free to ask questions, discuss and share ideas or experiences.
