The Criminal Law Reform Now Network invites IAP Members to participate in a study regarding private prosecutions
The CLRNN is asking IAP Members to complete a short survey about the permissibility of private prosecutions, and how they are managed within the criminal justice system in their jurisdiction.
The Criminal Law Reform Now Network (CLRNN) is currently examining the growing number of private prosecutions in England and Wales, with particular references to the adequacy of safeguards. As international comparison is an important aspect of this project, the CLRNN is asking IAP Members to complete a short survey about the permissibility of private prosecutions, and how they are managed within the criminal justice system in their jurisdiction.
To complete the survey, please click here (only for IAP Members).
If you would like to engage with the project in more detail or sign up to the CLRNN mailing list, do not hesitate to contact Dr Laura Noszlopy at email@example.com. The survey closes on April 30th 2021.
The CLRNN was founded in 2017 to facilitate collaboration between academics and other legal experts to gather and disseminate comprehensible proposals for criminal law reform to the wider community. It is apolitical and broad-based, including members of the public and mainstream media as well as legal professionals, police and policymakers. It is co-directed by Dr John Child, Reader in Law at the University of Birmingham Law School and Dr Jonathan Rogers, University Lecturer in Criminal Justice at Cambridge University, Fellow of Fitzwilliam College and the leader of the private prosecutions project. Its first major publication (January 2020) concerned proposals to reform the Computer Misuse Act 1990. More information is available on its website: www.clrnn.co.uk
