About the Mini-Lecture Series
This new series of events has been designed to offer audiences the opportunity to hear expert and interesting speakers in an up-close, informal setting. We also want to provide space to explore more provocative or less mainstream topics. These short and pithy lectures will be delivered to a standing audience, followed by plenty of Q&A, debate and discussion and accompanied with drinks.

Speaker: 
Professor David Ormerod QC, Deputy High Court Judge for England and Wales, Chair in Criminal Law at UCL Faculty of Laws, Criminal Law Commissioner for England and Wales
