Criminal Justice Section

The Criminal Justice section welcomes colleagues with an interest in criminal justice from any perspective - whether that be doctrinal, philosophical, socio-legal, criminological or policy-oriented. We are particularly interested in encouraging those with such research interests to submit papers for consideration for the Annual Conference, and / or to attend the subject section meetings. Graduate students undertaking research in the field of criminal justice are especially encouraged. The section is committed to addressing both topics of contemporary concern (such as those which are the subject of Law Commission consultation papers), and more general and timeless issues in the fields of criminal justice and criminal law.
