In association with the UK-US Fulbright Commission and the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law (Arizona State University), Birmingham Law School's Institute of Judicial Administration is hosting a workshop "Criminal Justice Reform in Comparative Perspective" on the 24th and 25th of August. The University currently features Prof. Erik Luna as a distinguished Fulbright visiting chair (working on counter-terrorism policies).

This workshop draws on a large-scale collaborative project Erik is just completing on criminal justice reform in the US. Our event focuses on areas of common, trans-atlantic interest bringing a number of renowned US experts to the UK. Over two days exchange on issues ranging from counter-terrorism and suspect communities to high-tech surveillance will take place. The format will be one core paper, a commentary and then discussion amongst the entire group of participants. Limited resources are available to help interested delagates with travel expenses and accommodation.
