Criminal Justice Expertise

Criminal Justice expertise 

From the development of prison law in Africa to assessing the impact of stress on police officers, and from innovative responses to alcohol consumption in offending 
to ground-breaking statistical fingerprint analysis, Nottingham has a track record of successful partnerships across criminal justice.

Our relationships with local, national and global policy-makers and practitioners are well-established, and we understand what it means to collaborate with those responsible for responding to crime and anti-social behaviour in a resource limited, rapidly changing world.

The image opposite captures the key stages in the criminal justice process (dark blue) and also the expertise which exists to support it (light blue). The University’s world-leading expertise can be found using the links below.
