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 members run a blog for informal discussion and debate around the CLJJ's activities, events and research at City University London.

Upcoming event: Attacking the Devil Film Screening and Panel Debate

Sir Harold Evans

The Centre for Law,Justice and Journalism and The Bureau of Investigative Journalism invite you to the screening of Attacking The Devil: Harry Evans and the last Nazi War Crime. This documentary, which won the Special Jury award at this year's Sheffield International Documentary Festival, tells the story of the Sunday Times Insight team's investigation of the thalidomide scandal. The screening will be followed by a discussion with its director Jacqui Morris and Bruce Page and Elaine Potter - both of whom were members of the Insight team and appear in the film.

The screening is the first in a series of films about journalism, organised by the Centre for Law Justice and Journalism and curated by Christopher Hird, visiting Professor at City University London , and chair of the Editorial Advisory Board of the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.
