About this event
The Assize Seminars provide a space for cutting edge academic work to play a practical role in understanding and developing the law. They are a chance to challenge, debate and refine criminal justice, providing a bridge from academia to criminal legal practice. Just like the Assize of old, the seminars are peripatetic, rotating between three leading academic institutions: Oxford, Cambridge and University College London, and occasionally, making a special stop elsewhere in England & Wales. Each assize seminar runs with the support of the Criminal Bar Association.
