Chris Daw: Justice on Trial

FREE ONLINECaptioned Event

Does punishment work at all, anywhere in the world? Are some people evil and beyond redemption? Or are all of us just one step away from potentially becoming a criminal?

Chris Daw QC has been practising criminal law for over 25 years, navigating Britain’s fractured justice system from within. Drawing on his own fascinating case histories and global reporting – including the 2019 London Bridge attacks, Alabama’s prison system and one of Britain’s most dramatic mass shootings – Daw challenges the status quo and some of the myths around crime and punishment and presents a radical new set of solutions for crime and punishment.

Interview by journalist, filmmaker and Chair of Leeds 2023 Ruth Pitt.
