Centre for Evidence & Criminal Justice Studies

Meet our staffNorthumbria Law School has invested significantly in our Centre for Evidence and Criminal Justice Studies which encourages further research, publication and exchange of ideas through international conferences and national seminars.

The Centre brings together researchers in these fields with representatives of agencies involved in the Criminal and Civil Justice systems (including Judges, Crown prosecutors, the Law Commission, probation officers and police officers), expert witnesses and academics from other Law Schools.

Inter-disciplinary research activity is promoted, notably within criminal evidence and forensic science, with projects examining the transnational exchange of forensic bioinformation, forensic science, the contractualisation of public services within the criminal justice system and the interfaces between law, bioethics, science, economics and politics.

The Centre's research activities are diverse: comparative and international criminal law and justice; criminal evidence and forensic science; the interaction of sports and criminal law which has addressed legal issues related to player violence, injuries and the regulation of spectators;  societal policy and sexual behaviour and youth justice.
