Congratulations to Ana Aliverti who has received the prestigious 2020 Radzinowics Prize, awarded by the British Journal of Criminology. Ana is the co-Director of Warwick Law Schools' Criminal Justice Centre.
Published in April 2020 by Oxford University Press, the focus of this book is the potentially radical and fundamental changes that are taking place within criminal justice in Britain and in France and the ways that these are driven by wider domestic, European or international concerns.

Congratulations to Assistant Professor, Dr Laura Lammasniemi who has been awarded a Leverhulme Fellowship for her project, “Narratives of sexual consent in criminal courts, 1870-1950”.
