Join Halsbury’s Law Exchange and our panel of experts as we:
- Examine the way in which female offenders are treated by the sentencing system.
- Consider whether there is a true, principled, case for reform.
- Debate whether or not women ought to be treated differently to men and, if so, how that should be approached.
We will be releasing an accompanying policy paper shortly before the event, which has been written by Felicity Gerry QC and Lyndon Harris, which will raise issues for discussion and question the appropriateness of certain proposed reforms.
*Places for this event are limited; please RSVP as soon as possible
