WGC Bangor: Future of the Justice System

You are warmly invited to join Dr Sarah Nason (Bangor Law School), Dr Robert Jones and Dr Huw Pritchard (Cardiff University’s Wales Governance Centre) for a discussion session on the future of the justice system in Wales.

At this event, aimed at students, practitioners and members of the public, academics will present their latest research on issues including:

  • The Significant new data, being generated for the first time in many years, about the nature of the criminal justice system in Wales including;
  • Sentencing and immediate custody rates and patterns in Welsh prisons
  • Data on women in the criminal justice system
  • Data on people from a BAME background and racial disproportionality in the system
  • The Welsh system of administrative justice (the law governing public body decision-making and related redress for individuals). This justice system ensures that public officials make correct decisions in areas such as housing, education, health and social care. It is the main justice system already significantly devolved to Wales
  • The potential of devolving further responsibility for justice policy and the administration of justice to Wales and creating a Welsh Legal Jurisdiction

This event will be held in Welsh and English. Translation equipment will be provided.
