Event description

Description

Professor Nick Hardwick - Chair of the Parole Board for England and Wales

They Would Have Been Hung

Leeds Law School is proud to host, Professor Nick Hardwick as he explores the legal and moral issues surrounding the treatment of those who have committed the most heinous offences – offences for which in the past they might have been hung.


The death penalty was abolished in the UK in 1965. The last execution was carried out in 1964. Drawing on his experience as a former Chief Inspector of Prisons and the current Chair of the Parole Board for England and Wales, Professor Hardwick will use this lecture to discuss the practical, legal and moral issues involved in deciding how we should now treat those who have committed the most heinous offences – offences for which in the past they might have been hung. The death penalty has now rightly been consigned to history but the high security prison system and parole processes that have replaced it remain too little understood and discussed.

Refreshments will be provided prior to the event for networking.

Time - 18:00 - 19:00 (arrival from 17:30)
Date - Wednesday 7 March 2018
Location - Rose Bowl, City Campus
