Description: The criminal justice system constitutes the area in which the resolutions of conflicts generated by criminality, both nationally and internationally, are cleared up. It includes a group of institutions led by professionals trained in different scientific disciplines, who have found no comprehensive educational offer in the traditional map of official degrees. This master's degree embodies a firm commitment to comprehensive training of future professionals and researchers in the field of the criminal justice system. It aims to offer transdisciplinary training in all the integral disciplines which make up the criminal sciences. It is the only existing master's degree in the Spanish geographical scope which approaches an analysis in depth, both of legal disciplines and of those with an empirical basis, related to the criminal phenomenon. In this sense, the very title of the master "Criminal Justice System" has been taken from consolidated international models, as the counterpart postgraduate studies at the University of Massachusetts or the University of Leicester, where the expression "Criminal Justice System" is used to refer the interdisciplinary approach to issues concerning the activity.

In order to achieve such an objective, jurists and criminologists from five different Spanish universities, coordinated by the University of Lleida, have joined forces to make this educational offer possible.

Since it is an academic and also a research-oriented master, that also offers a study in depth of subjects such as substantive criminal law, criminal procedure, criminology, basic crime theories, and victimology, it also aims to train the students from the side of research methodology. Thus, the objective is also to provide the students with the knowledge and methodological skills that, apart from allowing them to undertake a first research paper in the master, also introduce them to the execution of a doctoral thesis.
