Representations of Sex: Criminal Evidence and the Impact on Jury Decision-Making

A door marked Jury RoomFriday 17 April 2015, Northumbria University, City Campus East, Newcastle upon Tyne (10am-4pm)

This one-day seminar, entitled ‘Criminal Evidence, Representations of Sex and the Impact on Juror Decision-Making’ will seek to assess the depictions of sex and sexuality in the context of the criminal trial, as well as in the mainstream media. Evidential issues surrounding the admissibility of bad character and sexual history evidence will be evaluated in an attempt to ascertain to what extent a balance is maintained between the rights of the defendant and the complainant at trial.

 Speakers will include: Professor Jennifer Temkin (City University); Mehera San Roque (University of New South Wales, Australia); Dr Rachel Fenton (University of the West of England, Bristol); and Dr Roderick Munday (University of Cambridge).

The event is free and lunch and refreshments will be provided

Numbers are strictly limited so please confirm your attendance as soon as possible by emailing:

Please note that this conference is CPD accredited.

Presented by the Centre for Evidence and Criminal Justice Studies with the Gender, Sexuality and Law Research Group
