Women In Justice

Baroness Helena Kennedy QC, FRSA

Centre for Law, Crime & Justice 

Monday 14th November 5.30-8pm

In the Chair: Dr Frances McMenamin, QC.

One of the virtues of modern justice systems is legal equality. Yet in a world where women's and men's experience tends to be so different, do (and can) universal notions of justice hold true? How, if at all, are women written into the law, treated by the law, and judged before the law? Are universal standards of behaviour and rationality in reality male standards?  

And in a system traditionally dominated by men and male norms, how do women working in the justice system fare? 

In this John Fitzsimons Memorial Lecture Baroness Helena Kennedy QC will address these and other questions.

Helena Kennedy is one of Britain's most distinguished lawyers and active public figures. She has spent her professional life giving voice to those who have least power within the system, championing civil liberties and promoting human rights.

‘Radicalisation’: Understanding and Responding to Radicalisation

Thursday 3rd March 2016

6.30 pm – 8.00 pm

St George’s Tron, 163 Buchanan Street, Glasgow, G1 2JX

Glasgow SASO Seminar

How should we understand and respond to 'radicalisation'.  What challenges does it pose?  

The new Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 now places a specific duty, in effect, on a wide range of professionals (within and beyond the justice system) to ‘prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’? How will this work and what will it mean in practice for bodies such as universities, law courts, prisons, and social work? And how are terms like 'radicalisation'  'extremism' to be defined and applied in practice? 

In the Chair: John Cuddihy ( Former Detective Chief Superintendent and Head of Organised Crime and Counter Terrorism, Police Scotland)

Dr Nasar Meer (Reader in Comparative Social Policy and Citizenship, Strathclyde University)

The Power of Apology: the Future of Apology in Civil & Criminal Justice

Wednesday 24th February 2016 5.30 for 6pm Strathclyde University

In the Chair: Sheriff WS Ireland

Professor Prue Vines, University of New South Wales Law School, Australia

Mary Munro, Senior Visiting Fellow, Centre for Law, Crime & Justice, Strathclyde Law School

Apologising for wrongs is a normal part of healthy social interaction.  Yet does the legal system tend to obstruct apology? If so, what are the implications for all parties?

Recent legislation in both the civil and criminal justice spheres has led to new interest in how apology can be facilitated. What will this new legislation mean and where should Scotland go from here?

When legislators protect such apologies in an attempt to maintain normal social civility in the hope of preventing litigation we must ask whether the apology is affected by law in such a way as to merely become a cynical PR device. Apology is also used as a remedy in criminal law (e.g. Restorative Justice), but is this also a cynical PR exercise? Is there something of value in any apology, even in a court-ordered apology? What does and should the future hold for the role of apology in civil and criminal justice?

Prue Vines is Professor of Law at University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia , where she is Co-Director of the Private Law Research and Policy Group. She has also been Visiting Professor at Strathclyde University Law School since 2006. She is a leading expert on the role of apology in the justice system, as well as in tort and succession law. She has advised Law Reform Commissions and Governments in Australia, the UK, and New Zealand. The author most recently of Law & Justice in Australia (OUP) she is also the author of numerous books and articles on torts and succession and co-editor of the latest edition of Fleming on Tort Law.  Her work on apology draws on a range of disciplinary perspectives, including psychology (in which she originally studied and worked), sociology and philosophy. 

Mary Munro is Senior Visiting Fellow at CLCJ, Law School. She is a founder member of the RJ Forum Scotland and teaches RJ on the LLM / MSc in Criminal Justice & Penal Change at Strathclyde.  She is also editor of Scottish Justice Matters. Before moving to Scotland in 1992 she was a probation officer having originally qualified and practised as a solicitor.

Restorative Justice Seminar

Tuesday 6th October 2-3.45pm

Restorative Justice Options for Victims of Sexual Violence

Dr Bronwyn Naylor, Law Faculty, Monash University, Australia

Venue: Strathclyde University Lord Hope Building 227A

Most victims of sexual violence choose not to participate in the formal criminal justice system. Despite years of important reforms to law and evidence it seems unlikely that the criminal justice system will be able to offer an effective response to many cases of sexual violence, particularly where the case relies primarily on the victim’s own report. In this seminar I will outline the development of a community-based restorative justice intervention by a major Australian Centre Against Sexual Assault and its planned evaluation by Monash University academics.  

Dr Bronwyn Naylor is an Associate Professor in the Law Faculty at Monash University, Victoria, Australia, with degrees in Arts and Law from Monash University and a doctorate in Criminology from Cambridge University. She has been teaching, researching and publishing in criminal law, corrections, regulation, and criminal justice and gender for over 20 years.

Research into the Dynamics and Regulation of Compliance within a Criminal Justice Context

Monica Barry, Beth Weaver, Kristina Moodie and Laura Piacentini of the Centre for Law, Crime and Justice undertook research into the dynamics and regulation of compliance within a criminal justice context, with a grant from ESRC of £260,000 (ES/J02340X/1).  The study involved face to face interviews not only with offenders (both those who comply with parole and community-based sentences and those who do not), but also with judges/sheriffs, defence agents, social work practitioners, social work managers, Community Justice Authority chief officers, police officers, prison personnel and parole board members. The key research questions were to explore how offenders, policy makers and practitioners interpret compliance and breach; what factors affect compliance and breach; and how breach policy and practice can be enhanced so as to maximise compliance and encourage desistance. 

As part of the dissemination activities for this ESRC funded research, the Centre for Law, Crime and Justice hosted three workshops and a conference which explored the dynamics of compliance and breach from the perspective of both service users involved in the Criminal Justice system in Scotland and the professionals tasked with their management, rehabilitation and reintegration. These events were well attended by policy makers, practitioners, service users and academics from a wide variety of disciplines other than criminal justice social work, such as the legal profession, Police Scotland, Parole Board for Scotland, Department of Work and Pensions, third sector homelessness and employment organisations and Audit Scotland.

As well as the four conference presentations accessible below, the events enabled this broad range of stakeholders to come together to discuss and resolve common concerns around compliance, punishment, risk management, desistance, rehabilitation and reintegration.

The presentations below include Professor Tony Bottoms talking about the mechanisms of compliance, Dr Beth Weaver exploring the similarities and differences between professionals tasked with regulating compliance, Dr Monica Barry highlighting the hopes and concerns of offenders subject to social work supervision as part of their sentence, and Professor Fergus McNeill drawing the key themes of the conference together and suggesting new ways of understanding compliance in future policy, practice and research.

Soft Vengeance: Justice Albie Sachs in Conversation

Tuesday 2nd December 2014 

Strathclyde Centre for Law, Crime & Justice

This Nelson Mandela-Oliver Tambo lecture also inaugurates Justice Sachs’ appointment as Visiting Professor at Strathclyde University Law School.

By anyone’s standards, Albie Sachs’ life has been truly inspirational.

Born in Johannesburg, Albie Sachs worked as an Advocate defending people charged under racist statutes and repressive security laws under South African Apartheid. Sachs himself was raided by the security police, subject to banning orders restricting his movement, and eventually placed in solitary confinement without trial for two prolonged spells of detention and torture.

In 1988, while in exile in Mozambique, a bomb was placed under his car by South African security agents causing the loss of his right arm and the sight of one eye.

After recovering from the bomb, he devoted himself to preparations for a new democratic Constitution for South Africa. Sachs was one of the chief architects of the widely-admired post-apartheid constitution, and a persuasive advocate for the inclusion of a Bill of Rights and an independent judiciary in the new constitution. 

Following the first democratic election in 1994, Sachs was appointed by President Nelson Mandela to the new Constitutional Court, where he served until 2009. His judgements have been widely admired as among the most progressive and thought-provoking in the world.

An internationally acclaimed author, Albie Sachs is a brilliant speaker.

In this Nelson Mandela-Oliver Tambo Lecture, Albie Sachs discusses the award-winning documentary film Soft Vengeance: Albie Sachs and the New South Africa.

Refreshments served from 5.15pm. Film Screening and Discussion 5.45-8pm followed by reception

All welcome. The event is free of charge but booking is essential.

Mainstreaming Problem Solving Justice?

Re-thinking Courts, Children’s Hearings, Health and Community Justice

Friday 31st October 2014

How should multiple and inter-related human problems be addressed? Practitioners have long been aware of the inter-play between health, legal and childcare problems. Should these problems continue to be dealt with in isolation from each other? Or is there a ‘smarter’ way of working?

Advocates of Problem-Solving Justice argue for a multi-disciplinary approach. Is this desirable and can it work? While there have been numerous examples of this model working effectively in small scale pilots, should it be extended? If so, how?

Strathclyde University’s Centre for Law, Crime & Justice invites you to attend this event, which will draw on international and local experience and explore some of the key opportunities and challenges in the fields of the courts, care proceedings, and health and community justice.

In the Chair: Sheriff Brian Kearney

  • Judge Russell F Canan, Washington DC, USA
  • Sheriff Lindsay Wood, Glasgow Drug Court
  • Tam Baillie, Scotland’s Commissioner for Children and Young People

Criminal Justice and Electronic Monitoring: Re-Imagining the Future

Community Supervision and GPS Tracking: What Should Scotland Do? Thursday 21st November 2013 6.15pm

Speaker: Judge Silke Eilzer, Germany and Hesse Ministry of Justice

In the Chair: Sheriff Tom Welsh QC, Judicial Institute (tbc)

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?  

The Scottish government is currently undertaking a public consultation on the future direction of electronic monitoring, including the use of GPS tracking for certain categories of people. 

Judge Silke Eilzer is an experienced German Judge. Currently seconded to the Hessian Ministry of Justice as a Section Head for Electronic Monitoring, Judge Eilzer oversees not only the operation of EM in the state of Hesse, but also the implementation of the new nationwide GPS Tracking scheme.  She also has responsibility in Hesse for mutual legal assistance, victim support, narcotics law and law governing sexual offences.

Doing Children Justice: Albie Sachs to Lead Panel Event, Tuesday 2nd July 2013

Doing Children Justice: The Impact of Imprisonment on Dependent Children

Albie Sachs, Supreme Court Justice and award winning writer will lead a high profile panel discussion with the audience about the impact of imprisonment on dependent children. 

When a parent is imprisoned, what is the impact on the child?

As a signatory to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the UK is committed to taking the best interest of children into account as a ‘primary consideration’ for any decision that affects them.  But what exactly does and should ‘primary consideration’ mean? How can and should parental imprisonment be managed so as to minimise the impact on the child? And how should the impact on a child be assessed and weigh in the balance in the remand and sentencing decision-making process?

Led by Justice Albie Sachs, South African Constitutional Court, the panel will stimulate audience discussion. It will ask whether Scotland’s criminal justice system recognises and addresses its impact on the children and families of defendants and offenders.  In the landmark S v M (2007) case, Justice Sachs ruled that all judges must take the likely impact on children into account when a parent faces imprisonment.  Should this be done in Scotland? If so, how? And what would it mean for the use of custody if the parent-child relationship is assessed as being weak or even harmful?

The Speakers

Justice Albie Sachs, Constitutional Court of South Africa, and one of the chief architects of the widely admired new South African constitution. Justice Sachs is also an internationally acclaimed writer and inspirational speaker
