Criminal Law Reform Now Symposium on Private Prosecutions
UCL Faculty of Laws, Bentham House, Endsleigh Gardens WC1H 0EG, 19th April 2018, 10 am - 4.30
Welcome to our one day symposium on this topical subject. We will examine six points on which private prosecutions might be thought to be challenging in legal terms or in which there seems to be room for further developments. Speakers will talk for between fifteen to thirty minutes, in all cases allowing time for round table discussion afterwards.
Each of the six sessions will be overseen by a Chair, in most cases a member of the CLRN committee (Professor Liz Campbell, Dr John Child, Mr Simon Mckay and Dr Jonathan Rogers).
We are especially grateful to our speakers for their generosity in facilitating this event.
9.30 – 10 am Light refreshments for early bird attendees
