Centre for Law, Justice & Journalism
The Centre for Law, Justice and Journalism is the first major interdisciplinary centre in the UK to develop a broad yet focused interface between law, justice and journalism in society.
We aim to harness and maximise opportunities for research collaboration, knowledge transfer and teaching to become a centre of excellence.
The Centre brings together the expertise in the disciplines of Law, Criminology and Journalism at City University London. Other disciplines and fields such as International Politics, Communications Policy and Forensics provide important intellectually relevant and distinctive additions to the Centre.
CLJJ PhD students and associates run a blog for informal discussion and debate around the CLJJ's activities, events and research at City University London.
