Criminal Justice Unit

The Criminal Justice Unit provides a forum for criminal justice research activity within UWE. We support our members in the development and implementation of their research and other scholarly activity. We actively support research funding applications and encourage collaboration both within the unit and in the wider academy.


The unit runs regular seminars and conferences, which have included several high profile national and international events.


Our members have generalised and specific expertise, with a national and international reputation for scholarship and income generation.


The unit’s members are drawn from across the university and include scholars from law, criminology, psychology, education, public health, applied sciences and history.
