Institute of Criminology


Chris Daw QC is a leading criminal defence barrister with over 25 years’ experience, who has represented clients in some of the UK’s most complex, serious and headline-grabbing cases. He is also a popular writer and commentator on topical legal issues for national publications, TV and radio.  Presenter of the BBC television series, "Crime - Are We Tough Enough?", he is the author of "Justice on Trial”, a book which challenges everything we think we know about crime and punishment in Britain and presents radical solutions for this broken and failing justice system.

This webinar is an opportunity to hear Chris Daw QC outline his argument in favour of the abolition of prisons and then, in discussion and debate, to consider what would happen then.
