Winchester University launches Crime and Justice Research Centre
The University of Winchester launches the Crime and Justice Research Centre tomorrow (October 10), with the aim of sharing information among experts and students within the field.
“The centre will act as a catalyst and forum to allow researchers and experts at the university to come together and share their work,” said co-founder Brian Thornton, a journalist and a lecturer at the university.
The keynote address, Problems of Miscarriages of Justice, will be delivered by British legal system scholar, Professor Michael Zander QC.
Brian Thornton will also be presenting at the launch, alongside Professor Kris Spelman Miller; Tim Hall, head of department for Applied Social Sciences; and co-founder Dr Alan Grattan, programme leader for Criminology.
The centre is designed to complement the Winchester Innocence Project – part of the Innocence Network UK, which works to help alleged victims of wrongful conviction that have been identified as a result of academic research.
The Crime and Justice Research Centre Launch takes place on October 10 at 7pm, The Stripe building, Sparkford Road.
