Penny has carried out over 10 years of research work-shadowing different types of judges in their daily work, listening to their conversations, observing their handling of cases and the people who come before them, and asking them frank and searching questions about their lives, careers and ambitions. This research was published in her book published by Hart (2011), Sitting in Judgment – the working lives of judges. In this seminar Penny will focus on the changing role of judges in the criminal courts. Penny is also the author of the leading commentary on the English legal system appearing in eleventh edition Darbyshire, Penny (2014) Darbyshire on the English legal system.
