E-crime (6 points)


Leader: Jonathan Clough

Not offered in 2003.

Synopsis: This subject provides an overview of the legal issues which arise when electronic and telecommunication devices are used in the commission or facilitation of crime. Such devices allow offences to be committed on an unparalleled scale, sometimes with international ramifications, yet with greatly reduced chance of detection. They therefore present a great challenge to investigative agencies and to conventional notions of crime and jurisdiction. Topics to be covered include the nature of electronic crime, detection and investigation, application of existing criminal law principles, money laundering, legislative responses, and jurisdictional issues

Assessment: 4000 word essay worth 40%, final take home examination worth 50% and class participation worth 10%.

Contact Hours: 2 hour seminar per week
