Three researchers will discuss and share insights from their projects, which cover a wide range of topics across the criminal justice system and beyond. There will also be time for audience questions.

Dr Angela Sorsby’s research aims to increase understanding of differences in sentencing among ethnic groups within the criminal justice system, and whether any disparities are the same or different for men and women.

Dr Tim McSweeney’s research focuses on understanding the nature and extent of serious and organised crime cases heard before the Crown Courts in England and Wales.
