"This event promises to make an important and timely contribution to policy debates that are reshaping the criminal justice system. Anyone interested in crime reduction, restorative work and the government's proposed changes to the criminal justice system would not want to miss this conference."
Lord Charles Falconer
Our Annual Conference will debate proposed changes to the criminal justice system, and launch new research on restorative solutions to crime in different settings; particularly in the wake of the 2011 riots.
IARS’ 2012 Annual Conference is accredited by the Bar Standards Board for 3 CPD hours and at a special 25% off rate for junior barristers of 1-5 years call - to book email firstname.lastname@example.org - full programme available at www.iars.org.uk
The conference will take place on September 26th at Middle Temple, a stunning venue in the centre of London, and boasts a remarkable line-up of 15 criminal justice experts, academics and practitioners in a three panel format, chaired by Channel 4 Home Affairs Correspondent Simon Israel.
Panellists will be looking at issues ranging from:
- the government’s new plans for community sentencing,
- new case studies on restorative work with rioters,
- engaging Black and Minority Ethnic groups in prosecutions,
- new research into the experiences of young women in police custody, and much else.
The full price for the event is £80, which includes two complimentary books, along with lunch and refreshments at Middle Temple. However we are offering £60 tickets to junior barristers (years 1-5 call). IARS members are also entitled to a 25% discount. For more information, including the full event programme and booking information, go to www.iars.org.uk/events.
Those wishing to claim either of the two discounts mentioned above should email email@example.com.
This is a fantastic opportunity for those engaged in any of these issues to gain awareness of cutting edge research, and develop their knowledge of how new policies on restorative justice, community involvement in prosecution and democratically elected police officials will re-shape the criminal justice sector landscape over the next few years.
This event is delivered as part of IARS' European Union funded Youth in Action project and our Big Lottery Funded London Youth Now project.
