Gerald Gordon Seminar on Criminal Law

Gerald Gordon Seminar on Criminal Law

On the 11th and 12th of June 2009, a two day seminar, followed by a public lecture by Lord Hope of Craighead, was held in honour of Sir Gerald Gordon CBE QC LLD. A Festschrift, Essays in Criminal Law in Honour of Sir Gerald Gordon, was published the following year.

Following the success of this event, a decision was taken to establish the Gerald Gordon Seminar on Criminal Law as an annual generalist criminal law seminar. These seminars have been supported by the Clark Foundation for Legal Education and the Faculty of Advocates, while the 2009 public lecture received additional support from W. Green. Full details of the 2009-2018 seminars can be found on this site.

The eleventh seminar will take place at the University of Glasgow on Tuesday 11 June 2019. Further details will be posted on this site in early 2019; any queries in the meantime may be directed to james.chalmers@glasgow.ac.uk.
