Law & Criminology: Miscarriages of Justice – A Taste of Law & Criminology With Dr Sam Poyser From Aberystwyth University

23rd March 2021 @ 14:15 - 15:00



We are delighted to present the Taste Of series from Aberystwyth University which showcases different subject disciplines. Students will be engaged in a lively interactive discussion that provides enrichment of their current studies whilst bringing to life the wealth of academic possibilities available at university.

In Miscarriages of Justice – A Taste of Law & Criminology, Dr Sam Poyser from the Department of Law & Criminology will look at:

  1. What a miscarriage of justice is;
  2. Causes of miscarriages of justice;
  3. Impacts of miscarriages of justice

Students will be asked to have short discussions relating to 1 and 3. At points within the session, discussion between students will be encouraged.

Students will benefit from the session by not only learning about how miscarriages of justice come about but also about how they impact people who suffer them.
