Seminar series

The aim of this seminar series is for researchers, policy makers and practitioners to come together to discuss research findings and topical issues that bear directly on contemporary criminal justice decision making. Presenters are typically academics or practitioners working in the field of criminal justice both here and internationally. All share the common goal of working together to better inform government about what works in crime prevention and criminal justice administration.

The seminar series will be alternately located in the Sydney CBD and at the Parramatta Justice Precinct building at 160 Marsden St Parramatta. RSVPs are essential. Please email bocsar_seminars@justice.nsw.gov.au or ring 02 8346 1100.
