The United Kingdom has doubled its prison population, twice, in the past 65 years. By outlining a philosophical account of the moral purpose of prisons, Dr. Jeffrey Howard will explain how we can transform our criminal justice system to make it fairer, cheaper, and better at preventing crime.

We are pleased to announce that Special Collections from the Library will be displaying a number of special pieces UCL spiritual founder, and legal reformer, Jeremy Bentham. More information about the Bentham Project and Special Collections in the links below.
