The University of Leicester has an exciting opportunity for any students interested in or already studying Criminology. The Scarman Lectures are held annually at the university, and cover some of the biggest issues facing criminologists today. This year, the focus is on the future of criminal justice and human rights. A number of distinguished speakers will discuss how the criminal justice system will work, how it is changing, and the consequences for offenders, victims, practitioners and society in general.

These questions about change shed light on what we mean by human rights, and how social and criminal justice can achieve rights for all.

Students will also ponder these questions at all levels of their degree and studies as we strive to use academic studies to help create safer and more just environments.

The speakers for this year's lectures are:
  • Frances Crook OBE: Chief Executive, Howard League of Penal Reform
  • Mick Creedon: Chief Constable (ret.), Derbyshire Police
  • William Baldet: Coordinator, Leicester Prevent

And if all this isn't enough to persuade you, there's a wine reception afterwards where you'll be able to chat to other attendees and the speakers themselves!
