Students to be able to attend new public lecture series on Restorative Justice and Scotland in 2017

The Law School’s Dr Fiona Jamieson, Director of the MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice, is part of a group of Scottish academics who have been awarded funding to run a series of public open dialogues on the theme of Restorative Justice and Scotland.


Joining academics from the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde as leads on the series, she is helping to develop a programme of events that will run throughout 2017 attracting some of the best experts in the field as speakers and facilitators. The series is funded by the Scottish Universities Insight Institute

The first dialogue will take place on Monday March 13th in Glasgow asking ‘What is research telling us about restorative justice?’ and ‘What is happening across Europe in restorative justice practice and policy?’. The second dialogue will follow shortly after on 22nd March, entitled ‘Responding to Sexual Violence: Is there a Role for Restorative Justice?’.

Dr Jamieson is organising a dialogue to be held in October 2017 in Edinburgh, focusing on emotional dimensions of justice.

The events are open to all including students from the Law School.

More information on the series can be found on the Lecture Series website.
