Law and Criminology Research Group

About us

The Law and Criminology Research Group aims to conduct interesting and meaningful research that contributes to academic debates about law and criminology, but which also has an impact on policy and practice.

We have many areas of expertise and research interest which can be seen in our web pages. These include: ' Vulnerable Witness Project', 'Innocence Project', 'Genetic Parentage Project', wildlife crime, legal frameworks for honey bee biosecurity and conservation, the 'Offender Engagement Project', evaluating the social impact bond at Peterborough prison, and deaths in custody. The following web pages will introduce the range of projects that are currently ongoing along with individual staff and student projects.

If you are interested in finding out more about our research, please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to discuss this with you.
