Popular Diploma in Criminal Law returns in October 2021
Applications are still being accepted for the Diploma Centre’s long-running Diploma in Criminal Law and Practice, which commences on 8 October 2021. 
 
This course offers students in-depth exposure and practical insight into key practice areas of criminal law in Ireland, from both prosecution and defence perspectives. A core component of the course is the goal of developing the advocacy skills of those attending through interactive workshop sessions that mirror situations faced in the criminal justice process. The ethical and professional considerations of advising an arrested person in custody, dealing with vulnerable witnesses, and victims’ rights in a criminal trial process will be considered in detail. 
 
We discuss the role of the prosecution and certain State agencies in the criminal justice system, and other areas of practice will be reviewed, with a practical focus on evidential and procedural updates and coverage of emerging areas of practice such as white-collar crime and the increased impact of EU law on criminal practice. 
 
Autumn 2021 module structure:
Module 1: Arrest and detention
Module 2: Evidence and criminal law updates
Module 3: The District Court and advocacy skills
Module 4: Dealing with victims and vulnerable witnesses
Module 5: Judicial review
Module 6: The Role of An Garda Síochána in the Criminal Justice System (NEW) 
Module 7: Road traffic offences
Module 8: Sentencing Law and Practice
Module 9: Regulatory crime
