Law on Trial

In June, Birkbeck organized the 2012 Law on Trial conference. The event is presented as “a platform on which academics, trade unionists, practitioners and activists can present alternative and progressive thinking about law, the criminal justice system and its relationship to society and economy”. This year, it revolved around a question that has been actualized by the recent G20 protests and the 2011 riots in England: “Are effective justice and the fairness of the criminal process always in tension?”

Thanks to the Backdoor Broadcasting Company, some of the recorded lectures from this year’s event are available for free download, including:

Protesting in a time of cuts: a clampdown on civil liberties? – Kat Craig (Christian Khan Solicitors) and Owen Greenhall (Garden Court Chambers)

Reading the riots – Professor Tim Newburn, (Criminology and Social Policy, LSE)
