PAS Annual Lecture Date Announced

We are delighted to confirm that the PAS Annual Lecture will be held at Doughty Street Chambers on Thursday 9th November.

The evening will take as its focus telling prisoners stories through different media, and will feature panellists, Emmy winner, Jimmy McGovern, and Bafta nominee, Helen Black, who have co-written the second series of BBC prison drama, Time.  Former PAS Co-Director, Deborah Russo will also join the panel to reflect on her experience dramatising her recent PHD research.

The panel will explore the value and complexities of sharing prisoner stories, particularly given growing public interest in the Criminal Justice Sector.

The event is free to attend and drinks and canapes will be provided.

We are hugely grateful to Doughty Street Chambers for making this event possible.
