EVENT: UCL – ‘Frenzied Law Making’: Overcriminalisation by Numbers

Posted August 8th, 2013 in Forthcoming events by sally

“The New Labour government was accused of frenzied law making, creating a criminal offence for every day spent in office. The current government, responding to these concerns, has introduced a ‘gateway’ mechanism to halt the tide of criminalisation. New research suggests that the accusations levelled against the last government badly underestimated the reality: criminal offences were – and despite the gateway mechanism, are still – created at a far greater rate than one a day. But what does this actually mean, and what should we do about it?”
