2014 Student Criminology Forum

CrimBrief The Official Blog of the AIC

29 July 2014

Either the high quality of our annual student forum is becoming more recognised in the Tertiary sector, or this year’s advertised program hit the mark for many Australian criminology and law students, because over 200 students from all over Australia registered their interest.

As usual, it was a real pleasure to see so many engaged young criminologists come and ask our staff intelligent and well-judged questions during the seminars and workshops.

Presentations were tailored to not only examine crime types, but to also explore tricky issues around research.

Deputy Director (Research) Dr Rick Brown asked the presentation staff to highlight areas where methodologies and research design threw up difficulties, or where results may not be applicable to policy – and what to do then?

So students heard how we approach problem solving, and sometimes deal with results that don’t match client expectations.   

Videos of some student forum presentation are now available on CriminologyTV, and here are some photos of the seminars and workshop sessions:

And if you didn’t make the short list for this year’s event, keep checking Facebook and Twitter for the announcement of the 2015 registration process, in March - April next year.
