Courses of the Criminal Law and Criminology Programme

Freedom, Security and Justice in Europe FSJEU_K_ONLINE –
Prof. Dr. Karsai Krisztina
The Area of Freedom, Security and Justice is a specific policy field of the European Union; part of this policy is a European criminal policy, its study requires a radically different and specific approach. While studying about the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice, the student gains an understanding of legal connections between states in matters of criminal justice; learns to identify the innovative power of European integration in filling old (’traditional’) gaps of cooperation between states in criminal matters. Students also learn how pure European law can affect traditional national criminal law, and we come to understand how EU law in criminal courtrooms emerges and how politicians influence criminal justice issues.

Introduction into Hungarian Criminal Justice with Comparative Aspects

The course aims to introduce the students to the system of Hungarian criminal law: what are the main characteristics of substantive criminal law, and how works the criminal procedure in Hungary. Furthermore, some basic features of penal execution are discussed. The comparative criminal law method will be applied during the lecture. The students learn the Hungarian institutions of criminal law in a broad comparative context (systematic context, European context and „bilateral” context) in order to be able to evaluate the comparable institutions of the legal order (criminal law) of their countries.
