    What if ....? A series of challenging pamphlets 
    Frances CrookChief Executive of the Howard League on:  'Community magistrates delivering community justice'.

    The premise of the pamphlets is to challenge conventional thinking about various aspects of the penal system.  We want to work with established and well thought of thinkers, academics and practitioners to develop innovative, and perhaps controversial, ideas that can work as a stimulus to new policy initiatives and ultimately achieve change.

    We are keen to test, challenge and improve the ideas to be promulgated in the pamphlet.  To achieve this the author, in this case Frances Crook, will subject her ideas to 'peer review' at this invitee seminar, with the ideas initially subject to scrutiny by a couple of discussants.  We are pleased to announce that the discussants will be John FassenfeltChairman of the Magistrates' Association, Professor Barry Godfrey, University of Keele and Professor Julian Roberts, Oxford University. The event will be chaired by Professor Frances Heidensohn from the LSE
