For the first time we are very happy to welcome 22 students and 2 academics from The School of Global Urban and Social Studies at RMIT University for their Comparative Criminal Justice Systems Study Tour. The students have already completed their first week with a race around KL, visits to HELP University, UKM Faculty of Law, Putrajaya Appeals Court and listened to a number of industry guest speakers.
This two week program is designed to provide students a comparison and contrast between the Australian and Malaysian Criminal justice systems. The students will Identify and provide analysis of local government bodies, educational institutes and local and international NGO’s.
The emphasis on their industry visits it to consider a range of topics that include the administration and function of police, corrections, and courts, the impact of customary law and immigration on heterogeneous cultures, and the increasing internationalisation of both the incidence of crime and the administration of criminal justice.
