From Kilbrandon to McLeish and Beyond: 2020 Vision?

SASO (Scottish Association for the Study of Offending) 40th Annual Conference 13-15th November 2009

This year’s theme is about Reflecting on 40 years of Criminal Justice in Scotland and what can be expected over the next 10  years for the professions and professionals who work in the system. We want to explore what the criminal justice system will look like over the next 10 years. How the possible proposals in the Criminal Justice and Licensing Bill will impact on our system, on policing, sentencing, and with offenders in the community.

This year is a special conference for 3 reasons: 

1)       We are examining a range of issues facing the Criminal Justice System in Scotland and have secured leading speakers in their fields. The Conference will be Chaired by The Rt Hon Elish Angiolini, QC, Lord Advocate.

2)       It is our 40th Anniversary and the Conference will additionally include a Ceilidh and commemorative Photograph.

3)       We have rolled back time (a little) and have negotiated a special reduction to conference rate. We have also obtained a remarkably low ‘partners rate’, including the dinners and ceilidh, for those accompanying delegates but not attending conference.
