Prof. Luke MARSH was invited to join a research working group in alliance with Fair Trials

Prof. Luke MARSH was invited to join a working group, led by Dr. Rebecca K. Helm at the University of Exeter and supported by global criminal justice watchdog Fair Trials, that will bring together representatives of civil society organisations, criminal law practitioners, and leading academics in criminal law and criminology with the aim of:

  • Hosting discussions on guilty pleas and trial waivers in England and Wales – relating to law and human rights, criminology, psychology, and their wider social impact;
  • Coordinating joint advocacy to inform legal and policy developments, where appropriate; and;
  • Finding opportunities for collaborative work and research to promote a better understanding of guilty pleas and trial waivers, and their impact.
