Criminal Justice and Electronic Monitoring: Re-Imagining Scotland’s Future
Friday 10th May Strathclyde Centre for Law, Crime and Justice, Strathclyde University, Glasgow city centre
Rapid advances in technology to monitor and track human movement demand urgent answers to fundamental questions about its use in the criminal justice system. How should Electronic Monitoring be harnessed? What should (and should it not) be used for? What does it mean for the future of sentencing and the delivery of community penalties? And above all, can EM be used to support not only ‘efficiency’ but also fairness and humanity?
What are the best ways of using Electronic Monitoring as a sentence, or part of a sentence? Should it be delivered within a statutory probation service or as a contracted-out (‘privatised’) service? Can Scotland avoid some of the mistakes of England and Wales and use EM in ways which support values such as rehabilitation?
Leading the Discussion
In the Chair: Joe Griffin, Director of the Community Justice Division, Justice Department, Scottish Government
Mr. Jan Bungerfeldt, Sweden. The Head of Electronic Monitoring in the Swedish Prison and Probation Service, in which EM has been based since the first Swedish pilots in 1994.

Crime, Justice and Liberty in the Technological Age
Conference at Strathclyde University, Afternoon-Evening Thursday 9th May 2013
The future of criminal justice and liberty is the subject of major conference being held in Glasgow city centre at Strathclyde University on Thursday 9th May.
The conference is organized by the Scottish Association for the Study of Offending (SASO), Scotland’s most respected non-partisan criminal justice organization. The conference brings together policy officials, and leading legal and other criminal practitioners to learn, exchange and debate.
The conference addresses a range of key subjects including:
- Prosecuting Sexual E-Crime
- The challenges of criminal investigation in the virtual world
- Technology-mediated crimes against children
- Remote Alcohol Monitoring
- The Future of Surveillance
Dr Cyrus Tata (Professor of Law and Criminal Justice at Strathclyde Law School) and Honorary Secretary of Glasgow SASO explained the rationale for the conference:
“The pace at which new communications technologies are developing can seem disconcerting. So how can practitioners and policy-makers keep up with the new challenges these technologies pose? For instance, how can we marry public safety with privacy? Can we reconcile personal liberty with law enforcement, or, are we compelled to revise cherished legal values? These are just some of the urgent questions which will be addressed on Thursday 9th May. We are thrilled, therefore, to be able to present such a superb cast of speakers.”
Glasgow SASO is chaired by Sheriff Rita Rae QC, part-time High Court Judge
In the Chair: Ruth Wishart, Journalist and Broadcaster
Alison Di Rollo, (Head of the National Sexual Crimes Unit, Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service): ‘Prosecuting Sexual E-Crime: Evidence and Effetcs’
Det. Superint. Steven Wilson and Det Insp Eamonn Keane, Scottish Police Service: ‘The Challenge of Criminal Investigations in the Virtual World’
Dr Ethel Quayle (Clinical Psychology, Edinburgh University): Technology-Mediated Crimes Against Children

Murder and Violence Research Public Lecture Tuesday 7th May
Lethal and Non-Lethal Violence against Intimate Partners: Evidence from the Murder in Britain Study
Despite media reporting concentrating on ‘stranger danger’, most murder and violence is committed by someone known to the victim. This is especially likely when women are killed: most women who are murdered are killed by an intimate partner or ex-partner.
What can be done to address the disturbingly widespread levels of intimate partner violence and murder? To do so effectively we need to understand the patterns, dynamics and triggers of the violence. For instance, are perpetrators individuals with relatively distinct characteristics? Are those with significant criminal history more likely to commit intimate partner violence and murder? What is the influence of familial and childhood factors? And what roles do attitudes to the use of force and gender play?
As the leading experts on intimate partner violence, Professor Rebecca Emerson Dobash and Professor Russell Dobash will present the findings from their latest research before opening discussion to the floor about the implications for law, policy and practice.
Profs Rebecca and Russell Dobash have published several internationally award winning books and over 100 articles and chapters in the areas of domestic violence, gender, crime and homicide. They were recently awarded the World Congress of Victimology Award for Original Research and Publications. Their forthcoming book, ‘When Men Murder Women’ includes chapters on Intimate Partner Murder, Sexual Murder and the Murder of Older Women. It will be published by Oxford University Press in 2014.
Dobash and Dobash have recently been appointed as Visiting Professors at Strathclyde University Law School’s Centre for Law, Crime and Justice where they will teach on the new LLM/MSc in Criminal Justice and Penal Change

Scottish Constitutional Futures Forum seminar: Energy Policy and Constitutional Change
18 January 2013 - University of Strathclyde, Collins Building, Main Lecture Theatre (1.30 pm - 5.30 pm)
Scotland's rich energy resources – oil and gas, and now renewables – have played an important role in the economic and political case for greater autonomy. The Scottish Government and Parliament currently have only limited legal powers in relation to energy policy, but will gain full domestic legal competence in the event of independence. Even if independence is rejected, energy is likely to be a prime candidate for further devolution if, as promised, the terms of the current devolution settlement are revised.
Greater autonomy brings with it the prospect of greater policy differentiation – and indeed the Scottish Government already pursues distinctive energy policy goals. However, how meaningful is autonomy in a world of inter-connected energy markets, and in which domestic energy policy is increasingly constrained by supranational obligations?
This half-day seminar explores these issues, examining the significance of energy policy in the constitutional debate, and the potential impact of constitutional change in different energy sectors, drawing upon experience of negotiating energy autonomy and interdependence in other small, European nations.
Greg Gordon, Senior Lecturer in Law, University of Aberdeen
Paul Gorecki, Research Professor, Economic and Social Research Institute, Ireland
Aileen McHarg, Professor of Public Law, University of Strathclyde
John Paterson, Professor of Law, University of Aberdeen
Anita Rønne, Associate Professor in Energy Law, University of Copenhagen

The Political Economy of Punishment Seminar
Monday 3rd December 3.30-5pm
Why is it that imprisonment has undergone an explosive growth in the US and Britain
over the last three decades against the background of falling crime rates in both
countries? And why has this development met with a significant and escalating degree of public support?
Drawing on economics, politics and psychoanalysis, Dr Leonidas K Cheliotis (University of Edinburgh) will offer fresh insights about these urgent questions.
All welcome. Click here for further details.

Faculty of Advocates Open Day
Monday, 19th November 2012
The Faculty of Advocates next Open Day will take place on Monday 19 November 2012. There will be two slots available to those interested in taking part, one in the morning, and one in the afternoon.
All students who are interested in attending should contact Catriona Thomson to secure a place at one of the sessions. Places are limited but if demand is high, a further Open Day may be organised shortly thereafter.
It is intended that the experience will allow interested students to gain an insight into life at the bar. The format of the day will be that groups of students will be allocated to a member of Faculty who will explain a little about the working life of an Advocate, give a tour of Parliament Hall and provide an overview of the history of the Faculty itself. It is hoped that there will be a visit to the advocates clerking area, and if possible the groups will be taken into a live courtroom in order to see a case. There will be an opportunity for questions at the conclusion of the visit.
Media and the Criminal Courts in Scotland
Thursday 1 November 2012 at 4.00 – 5.30pm, McC303, McCance Building
Chair: Ian Watson, Knowledge Media Programme Manager with IRISS (Institute for Research and Innovation in Social Services) and previously with the Herald newspaper. Blogs at blogs.iriss.org.uk/socialmedia/
Date: Thursday 1 November 2012 at 4.00 – 5.30pm
Venue: McC303, McCance Building, 16 Richmond Street, Glasgow, G1 1XQ See: www.strath.ac.uk/maps/mccancebuilding/
Is the ‘genie out of the bottle’ on the use of new media in our courts? Following the Scottish Parliament’s Justice Committee evidence gathering roundtable and debate on the topic this month, and the recent announcement by the Lord President of a review of TV in courts, this seminar offers an opportunity to discuss the implications for criminal courts in Scotland. We are waking up to the simultaneous demise of newspaper court reporting on the one hand, and on the other, growing pressure for courts to engage with social media, and broadcasting in new ways. Assuming that some knowledge of courts is fundamental to our democracy, how can the public find out about what happens in court? How open to the media should courts be? What are the tensions if any between social media and TV coverage and procedural fairness?
Our discussion will be introduced by James Doleman who will reflect on lessons learned during the Open Justice blogging project of February 2011, and his experience of blogging reportage during the Sheridan trial.
Tea/Coffee available from 3.30pm For more details: http://www.strath.ac.uk/humanities/lawschool/

Orders of Lifelong Restriction: Dangerousness, Decisions and Dilemmas
Thursday 1st November 2012 6-8pm
The controversy about the assessment, treatment and decisions to release those who are deemed to be a public danger will be examined on the evening of Thursday 1st November 2012 6-8pm
The following speakers will lead the evening before opening the floor to questions and discussion:
In the Chair: Sheriff Rita Rae QC, part-time High Court Judge and former member of the Parole Board for Scotland
Dr Lorraine Johnstone Consultant Clinical Forensic Psychologist and Risk Management Authority Assessor
Rhona Hotchkiss (Deputy Governor of HM Prison Shotts)
Keith Gardener (Criminal Justice Social Work)
The meeting is being held by the Scottish Association for the Study of Offending in Glasgow. SASO is dedicated to the non-partisan study of offending and provides a forum for informed discussion about criminal justice law, practice, policy and research.
Dr Cyrus Tata, Director of Strathclyde Law School’s Centre for Law, Crime and Justice and Honorary Secretary of Glasgow SASO explained the rationale for the event: “Trying to decide the correct approach to the detention and restriction of those who are seen as posing a potential danger to the public is a matter of intense legal, scientific and ethical debate. This is not simply a matter about OLRs but raises wider issues about the prediction and assessment of risk, public confidence, as well as punishment rehabilitation.” We are delighted, therefore, to welcome speakers who have enormous experience of and have thought deeply about these issues. It promises to be a memorable evening.”

Transforming Justice – Transforming Lives
Wednesday 26th September 2012
What should the criminal justice system do to confront crime? Is it doomed simply to manage the revolving door of re-offending? Is there a better alternative?
In recent years, some judges and others have argued for a radical new alternative.
With its emphasis on specialisation, judicial monitoring, and partnership with social services, Problem-Solving Courts aim to tackle some of the underlying factors (such as addiction) in offending.
Should Scotland pursue Problem Solving Courts well beyond the existing pilot drug courts? What opportunities and challenges does it present?
Three senior and distinguished American Judges will set out their experiences of problem-solving justice before opening discussion and debate with the audience. Wednesday 26th September 2012.
All welcome but booking is essential.

AHRC Conference - September 2012
LSE, London, 15th September 2012
Professor Barry Rodger organised and hosted an AHRC funded conference at the LSE, London on Saturday, 15th September 2012. The conference was based on his AHRC project on Comparative private Enforcement and Collective Redress in the EU. The conference was attended by over 35 delegates, and initial sessions allowed national rapporteurs (from 24 of the 27 EU Member States) to outline their national reports on the legal and institutional background to private enforcement and collective redress in their home State, together with a brief summary of the empirical data on private enforcement case-law- the first time such a comprehensive study has been undertaken. Later sessions allowed firstly for cross-analysis of the data, with a broad review of the reports and comparative work on the economic and legal incentives in relation to competition litigation; and secondly for a range of stakeholders from academia, the OFT and European Commission, the judiciary and consumer organisations (Which? and BEUC (the European Consumer Organisation)) to provide their input and views on the project and the way forward in this field.

International Summer School in Mediation and Negotiation 2012
Following the huge success of last year’s Summer School, this four day intensive course provides a unique opportunity for students from Scotland and the USA to study mediation.
Recognising that mediation is an activity that is best learned by doing, this course offers numerous opportunities for practice. Students will learn about the skills of the mediator, the shape of a mediation session, how to identify people’s real interests and how to secure agreement. Effective conflict resolution requires more than technique however: the course also covers mediation’s intellectual scaffolding – theories and ideas borrowed initially from other disciplines and increasingly being developed by conflict resolvers themselves. The programme is run in conjunction with John Marshall Law School in Chicago who will be bringing a number of graduate students over for the week. Students will be awarded certificates from John Marshall Law School on successful completion of the course.
The course will be taught at Strathclyde Law School from 29th May – 1st June by Charlie Irvine, Visiting Professor, Strathclyde Law School and Chair of the Scottish Mediation Network; Prof. Iain Bucciarelli, Center for Advocacy and Dispute Resolution, The John Marshall Law School; and Professor Bryan Clark, Strathclyde Law School.
Cost : £400

Can the criminal justice system command a higher level of public trust? Around the world, levels of public confidence in the criminal justice system appear to be worryingly low and in decline. In an effort to pose as ‘tough on crime’, many countries have responded ever-more punitively, imposing mandatory minimum sentences, and squeezing professional discretion. The result is: spiralling prison populations, inequalities, and a drift to more public money being spent on incarceration than on education. And all of this has been done in the name of the public and yet has failed to improve ublic confidence – often the reverse.
Is there be better way, or, should Scotland accept that trust in the justice system is in inevitable decline? Can we find a way to pursue a rational approach to crime and punishment which attracts public confidence, or, at the very least, is not held to ransom by penal populism?
The Hon Judge ProfessorGertner and Professor Freiberg will explore these issues followed by Q&A chaired by Sheriff Tom Welsh QC, Director of Judicial Studies.
All welcome but booking is essential.
