A criminal justice course will include all the necessary information in the district of criminology, involving study of crime as a social phenomena, causes of crime, criminal behavior, as well as many other aspects of crime. Criminal justice is the system of practices and institutions and governments directed at upholding social control, deterring and mitigating crime, sanctioning those who violate laws with criminal penalties and rehabilitation efforts. The rights of the accused are rights that protect those accused of crime.
