“What are prisons for? Recent events in England reviewed”. Professor Padfield will discuss the UK Government’s current plans in the light of recent events, exploring the purposes of sentencing and of the prison system.
Professor Nicola (Nicky) Padfield was the Master of Fitzwilliam College 2013-19, and remains Professor of Criminal and Penal Justice in the Law Faculty. She is an Hon QC, and actively involved in the life of the Middle Temple, where she is a Bencher. She has taught in Cambridge since 1991 and is an Honorary and Life Fellow of her College. Her research focuses on sentencing and its implications: particularly parole and recall. She has also been involved in Learning Together, the prison education programme which suffered the tragic murder late last year of two alumni of the Institute of Criminology, one a member of staff at the time of his death.
1 Place du Châtelet
After the war of 1870, some wealthy families from Alsace wanted to remain French Citizens. To do so, they moved to Paris and founded brasseries. The Zimmers were amongst them, and their restaurant remains as one of the finest Belle Epoque restaurants in Paris, recently decorated by Jacques Garcia. Formerly the stamping ground of Sarah Bernhardt, Richard Strauss, Emile Zola, Picasso, and Toulouse Lautrec, Le Zimmer remains a symbol of Le Belle Epoque.
