About Criminology at Leicester

Leicester is one of the very few universities in the country which is dedicated to teaching and researching criminology.

Our students benefit from learning in an environment that is home to some of the UK's leading criminologists. We are a first point of contact for journalists needing information and advice on crime issues, and are regularly called upon by national and local governments to assist with policy development.

We are committed to offering learning experiences that are challenging, richly supported and engaging, and to conducting research that is innovative and transformative.

Scarman Lectures

Every year we invite high profile guest speakers to deliver papers on current issues in criminology, criminal justice, policing and community safety.
