Criminal Justice Social Work after McLeish – Possibilities and Pitfalls

The Glasgow School of Social Work is pleased to invite you to our next Research Seminar.


We are pleased that Professor Fergus McNeill, Professor of Criminology and Social Work, Glasgow School of Social Work has agreed to present the seminar.


The title of his presentation is "Criminal Justice Social Work after McLeish – Possibilities and Pitfalls".


This seminar will explore the implications for criminal justice social work of the recent report of the Independent Prisons Commission, ‘Scotland’s Choice’. In particular, it will examine whether the idea of offenders paying back in the community represents a necessary and sufficient underpinning rationale for the use of community penalties and, more generally, for the future development of criminal justice social work


The seminar will take place on Thursday 6th November 2008.  It will be held in the David Stow Building Room D203.  The seminar will start at 4pm and will finish at 5.30pm. 


The chair of this seminar has yet to be confirmed..
