Event — Architectures of Law: Courts, Space and Legal Legitimacy

The first in a series of workshops funded by the ESRC Impact Acceleration Account will take place in Cambridge in early July:

Architectures of Law: Courts, Space and Legal Legitimacy

2-4pm Thursday 7th July

Robert Gardner Room, Emmanuel College, Cambridge

Organiser: Alex Jeffrey (asj38@cam.ac.uk)

Speakers: Ann Griffin (MaccreanorLavington Architects); Wendy Pullan (University of Cambridge); Linda Mulcahy (LSE); Emma Rowden (University of Technology Sydney)

On the 15th October 2015 Natalie Creeney, CEO of HM Courts & Tribunals Service, stated that the “physical paradigm” of courts in the UK had to change: from now on greater use of technology, mediating NGOs and temporary courts sites would transform public access to justice. This workshop will explore the implications of reorganising court spaces, focusing on the consequences for judicial processes, public attitudes towards law and understandings of urban public space. This exploratory event is designed to help build a network of academics and practitioners interested in the relationship between material infrastructures, justice and the judicial process.

The event is the first in a series of workshops funded by the ESRC Impact Acceleration Account.

ALL WELCOME
