Jonathan Simon, Associate Dean of the Sociology and Jurisprudence Programme and Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley, has been awarded a Leverhulme Trust Visiting Professorship. Professor Simon will undertake research at Edinburgh Law School for a period of one year.

Professor Simon's book ‘Governing Through Crime' (Oxford University Press, 2007) represents the most complete single-volume account to date of the mechanisms whereby crime control practices, and associated forms of governance, have been reconstructed over recent decades, and the consequences of that reconstruction for American penal politics and more generally American political culture.

During his time at Edinburgh Law School Professor Simon will deliver a number of lectures and seminars, as well as undertaking some teaching commitments on the MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice.
