Professor Joanna Bourke
This event covers police, police doctors and violent murder.
Most of us have witnessed or had personal dealings with violent people. Why do they act as they do? How have British and American commentators during the past two centuries understood violent behaviour? The media incites anxieties about personal vulnerability; widespread innumeracy leads many people to misread crime-statistics; and an expectation of greater civility makes its breach so much more frightening. What can we do to reduce levels of violence in our society?
No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture

The criminal courtroom is undergoing a shift wherein its outcomes are now more readily available to the public via digital media, and its processes and practices are increasingly likely to rely on audio-visual technology. From the move towards online courts, to the increased reliance on photographic evidence, from the recent introduction of courtroom broadcasting to the use of live-link video for witness testimony, the twenty-first century courtroom is steadily moving into a virtual realm.
This one-day symposium explores the emergence, implications, and impact of these new technologies of transmission in the courtroom. The event is interdisciplinary, and brings together speakers from law, sociology, criminology, media and communication studies, and the arts. Discussion will focus on three inter-related topics: the as-live transmission of court and inquiry proceedings via tweets and video footage; the use of live link technology and visual evidence in criminal trials; and the move towards online adjudication and sanctions (the so-called ‘virtual courtroom’). In creating a space to consider these important developments alongside one another, the symposium seeks to develop shared insights around the key themes of transparency, visuality, and mediatization. A key concern will be what’s lost – if anything – in the turn towards visual and digital technologies in the courtroom, and the effects of mediation on jurors, witnesses, defendants, and the public.
This event is sponsored by the Socio-Legal Studies Association and the Department of Social and Policy Sciences, University of Bath.
Places are free, but must be reserved in advance.

HM Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) is continuing to engage with practising legal professionals and professional court users about our £1bn courts and tribunals reform programme.
We are hosting a series of face-to-face and online events, organised by jurisdiction and topic. These events will enable participants to increase their knowledge and understanding, provide feedback, and ask questions about the progress and ambitions of the reform programme.
This event, which will also be of interest to the Crown Prosecution Service and representatives from the police, will include an introduction, overview of crime reform, live demonstrations, and Q&A.
This session aims to showcase the crime area of the reform programme and how it will support digital working throughout the criminal courts; enable all participants in the criminal justice system to work from the same information to reduce duplication of effort; and introduce more consistent working practices.

Centre for Criminal Justice Studies, University of Leeds
This is the third meeting of the Leeds Historical Criminology Seminar, which aims to showcase historical research which enriches understandings of crime and criminal justice, both past and present. This event will focus on the interconnections between politics, the economy, crime and criminal justice through time. It will feature presentations from Pam Cox (University of Essex), Ruth Lamont (University of Manchester), Stephen Farrall (University of Sheffield) and Zelia Gallo (King’s College London). This promises to be a really stimulating discussion of a pressing contemporary issue in crime and criminal justice in historical perspective.
The event is free to attend and lunch will be provided for all delegates.
Prior registration is essential – further details about the event, and a link to the registration page, are available here
