Dinner with Professor Nicola Padfield

1 April @ 19:30 - 23:00 CEST


Professor Nicola Padfield
will speak on the subject

“What are prisons for?  Recent events in England reviewed”.  Professor Padfield will discuss the UK Government’s current plans in the light of recent events, exploring the purposes of sentencing and of the prison system.

Professor Nicola (Nicky) Padfield was the Master of Fitzwilliam College 2013-19, and remains Professor of Criminal and Penal Justice in the Law Faculty.  She is an Hon QC, and actively involved in the life of the Middle Temple, where she is a Bencher.  She has taught in Cambridge since 1991 and is an Honorary and Life Fellow of her College.  Her research focuses on sentencing and its implications: particularly parole and recall. She was also involved in the project where there were two murders of students assisting with the Prison Education Programme late last year.

Details on venue and pricing will be confirmed in due course, but do block the date of Wednesday 1st April now.

We realise this is the same date a monthly drinks, but we did not want to miss the opportunity of hearing Professor Padfield on such a topical subject and this is the date that fits into her travel itinerary.

To express an interest and pre-book your places, please contact Tony Banton, Hon. Secretary
