Centre for Criminal Justice Studies Postgraduate Research Conference 2016

The CCJS PGR Conference is an important event in the annual calendar of the CCJS research centre. It provides a forum where students can discuss their ongoing research projects with staff and one another. We are delighted to announce that Kelly Hannah-Moffat from the University of Toronto will be the keynote speaker this year. Professor Hannah-Moffat is a world-renowned scholar who has contributed numerous books and articles on risk, punishment, and marginalized and diverse populations; essential reading for any criminological or social justice scholar.

We would like to extend the invite to all School of Law PGRs and staff. We hope that this will allow our speakers to consider alternative perspectives from other areas of law. It will be an important opportunity for law school staff and students to observe what types of research are being conducted outside of their individual centres. 

The Conference will conclude with a reception and the annual CCJS Conference Meal, which will round off what will make for an excellent day. Please find the programme attached.
