The Criminology Student Conference is back for its 7th year! After hosting over 1,500 students and teachers in 2017, we've packed this year with leading experts and real-world insights into criminal investigations, the criminal justice system and discrimination.

Not only that, leading up to the event we will be releasing clues to schools signed up to attend, to see if you can put your Criminology skills into practice in order to solve our very own murder! Click here to find out more...

Perfect for all students interested in studying Criminology at undergraduate level, and all current students of Law, Sociology and Psychology, this one-day conference will feature a Q&A session with a former prisoner who will share their story from both inside and outside prison.

Programme

The Psychology of Lie Detection
Dr. Zoe Walkington
Take a look at the criminal investigations and the pressures and issues affecting both suspects and police investigators. Consider some of the key areas where psychologists have studied investigative processes; students will 'have a go' at certain elemants of an investigation, for example finding out how good they are at detecting deception in others.

Islamophobia in the post-Brexit Climate
Dr. Irene Zempi
Examine the nature/extent of Islamophobia in the 'real' world but also in the cyber world. Consider the gendered dimensions of Islamophobia as a form of misogyny and street harassment. 
Q&A session with Dr. Irene Zempi

Domestive Violence & Abuse and the Criminal Justice Process
Dr. Lyndsey Harris
Address key components of the A-level specifications relating to crime, deviance, social order and social control by examining the experience of victims / survivors of domestic violence and abuse.
The criminal justice process and the role of a number of key criminal justice agencies including the Police, CPR and Courts. The barriers to services for victims and access to justice, drawing upon key literature in criminology and victimology.

Life Behind Bars
Noel 'Razor' Smith
Noel is a convicted bank robber who has spent the greater portion of his adult life in prison. Smith served a life sentence for armed robbery. Whilst in prison he taught himself to read and write, gained an Honours Diploma from The London School of Journalism and an A-level in Law. His autobiography, A Few Kind Words and a Loaded Gun was published in 2004. He then went on to write A Rusty Gun: Facing Up To a Life of Crime in 2010 after serving at the unique rehabilitation prison HMP Grendon. Students will hear about Noel's experience and have a chance to ask him their questions. 

Steven Duffy - Chair
Steven Duffy started his career serving in the Armed Forces as a Military Intelligence Officer, taking part in counter insurgency, terrorist and conventional operations. Wounded-in-action, he subsequently transferred his skills to one of the UK's largest Police Forces. He has led overt and covert operations, and controlled Covert Human Intelligence Sources. He commanded a busy CID Department responsible for the investigating of the most serious and complex crime categories. He has recently returned from the UAE where he was developing and delivering policing skills short courses as part of the Abu Dhabi Police capability-building project. 
Students will hear about Steven's experiences as he both introduces speakers and gives insights into the practical application of theories.
