Community Justice Scotland: Keith Gardner
*Organised by Community Justice Scotland
Keith Gardner, Head of Analysis and Improvement at Community Justice Scotland, will be discussing the work that Community Justice Scotland does, how you can get involved and what you could do with your law degree. There will also be a Q&A session.
Community Justice Scotland focuses on reducing offending and further offending by addressing the needs of people affected by the justice system. It is founded on the belief that most crime is preventable, and that it can be managed in a positive way, which benefits communities and allows them to move on from harm caused. They have a duty to influence and enable reform by working closely with the Scottish Government, the courts and law enforcement agencies.
