Criminal Justice Discussion Group

Paul Roberts is the convenor of the Criminal Justice Discussion Group (CJDG) which organises termly informal presentations by scholars and practitioners on issues broadly within the overlapping fields of criminal law, criminal justice (including criminal evidence and procedure) and criminology.

With a strong emphasis on lively debate and constructive criticism, the CJDG has become a popular forum for presenting work in progress, and numerous papers have subsequently been published acknowledging the input of the Group. Postgraduate research and LLM students, as well as colleagues from other Midlands universities, regularly attend.
