We are delighted to announce that on the April1 14 we will be again hosting our Crime & Punishment Seminar. We have three fantastic speakers. A former chief constable on why our drug laws must be reformed, former Oxford don, psychologist Peter Collett, on how to spot a liar, and Ian Puddick, who found himself at the centre of a multi-million pound police operation after his wife had an affair with her well connected boss. All will be discussing their unique insights and tales from inside the criminal justice system. Click here to purchase your tickets for this fascinating insight into how law is enforced, both the good and the bad.
