W G Hart Legal Workshop 2012: Globalisation, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice

26-28 June 2012
Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, London



The Academic Directors of the 2012 Workshop are:

  • Peter Alldridge, Queen Mary, University of London
  • Valsamis Mitsilegas, Queen Mary, University of London
  • Leonidas K Cheliotis, Queen Mary, University of London; and
  • Julian Roberts, University of Oxford



The 2012 W G Hart Legal Workshop will address the multifarious relationship between globalisation, on the one hand, and criminal law and justice, on the other hand. At a time when economic, political, and cultural systems across different jurisdictions increasingly become or are perceived to be parts of a coherent global whole, it appears that the study of crime and criminal justice policies and practices can no longer be restricted within the boundaries of individual nation-states or even particular transnational regions.
