Free to attend
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.

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.
