Course Description

The Advanced Diploma of Justice provides a pathway to enter, develop additional skills and/or pursue a long-term career within the justice field. The program enables you to develop knowledge of the central issues that shape and influence the field of justice by exploring legal, ethical, social and cultural issues and promoting self-awareness. It introduces strategies for understanding, preventing and investigating criminal activities and knowledge of criminal justice procedures. It develops knowledge, skills and attitudes in leadership, management, planning, coordination, case management, youth justice, research and analysis and its applications relevant to the judicial and legal environments. The program prepares you as a graduate to work autonomously in a range of complex situations, with thorough understanding of the structure of our criminal justice system and for the issues behind criminal behaviour.

The program responds to industry demand for paralegals/justice officers who can work in both custodial and non-custodial areas in the administration of justice and in up to date contemporary approaches to protecting Australia’s borders and anti-terrorism strategies. It is designed to meet the industry’s need for officers who are trained to meet the pressures of demographic fluctuation and changes, and have a comprehensive knowledge of criminology and criminal law. Graduates of this program are able to contribute to initiatives in the justice system in a manner that enhances service and professionalism in a diverse community.
