Students focusing on crime and justice topics are invited to share information and resources on a new website www.crimestudents.org. The site is designed for undergraduates, postgraduates and school students.   The site contains useful crime and justice resources, news articles and information about events. Members of the site can add information and are invited to discuss topical crime and justice issues, support their fellow students with queries and blog about what they’re currently studying. The site is also a central point to view opportunities for study at undergraduate, masters and postgraduate level on topics related to crime and justice.    Those involved in teaching may want to bring the site to the attention to their students and refer students to the collection of crime and justice resources on the site. Teachers may also want to use the site as a teaching aid, perhaps asking students to discuss crime and justice topics on the site or maintain a blog for a period of time, thus encouraging reflective consideration outside tutorials.      The site has been developed by the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research and is supported by a group of student and teacher facilitators. If you have any comments or queries about the site please feel free to post these on the site or contact Claire Lightowler directly, enquiries@www.sccjr.ac.uk or 01786 467716.
