Fresh Ideas for Criminal Justice Topics for your Research Paper

Every conceivable subject that a student can major in will require some sort of paper to be written. Term papers, research papers, essays, dissertations, etc. etc. Criminal Justice is no exception to this rule; in fact, this subject requires a great deal of research and persuasive toned papers. After a while, it often becomes difficult to find fresh, new ideas for these papers. However, it is very important that you do not over use common topics and previous ideas. To help criminal justice student everywhere, here is a list of fresh ideas and topics as well as how to find more.

Topic List

  1. Recidivism
  2. The effect of the justice system on society at its implementation versus now
  3. Racism against criminals: reality or myth
  4. Gender biases in criminals versus law officers
  5. Criminology in specific cultures
  6. Victimology: what does it mean in relation to the crime itself
  7. Does technology play a role in today’s crimes or not?
  8. Where does psychopathy and mental status stand in trials?
  9. Crimes and religion: a connection or an easy target?
  10. Are men or women better at upholding the law?

These topics are only suggestions and are in no way the only or necessarily the “best” topics to use. When choosing a topic, always choose something that you are or have the potential to be very passionate about. The best papers are the ones that show true passion and a true effort.

A “fresh” idea can be one of two things; a completely new topic or a total reimagining of an old topic so that it seems new. In many cases, a totally unique perspective will make an old topic seem new again, likewise, repetition will destroy an otherwise great paper. Whatever topic you pick, whether new or old, make it your own in every way possible while keeping the integrity of the research paper. When in doubt, head to the schools library to do research on laws, crimes, famous court cases, and research papers on all things criminal justice related to garner ideas from. Remember to look for little known laws and facts, court cases that did not get a lot of media attention, and underestimated crimes. Within this wealth of information will surely be several gold nuggets of inspiration and fabulous paper topics. Dig into the very depths of the justice system and find what no one else has taken the time to find.
