EVENT: IALS – Open Justice and Open Secrets: The Cultural Afterlife of Criminal Evidence

Posted March 19th, 2015 in Forthcoming events by sally

‘This presentation examines the cultural afterlife of criminal evidence. It explores what happens to the evidence tendered in criminal proceedings after the conclusion of the trial, or during the trial but outside the courtroom. Formally regarded as part of the court record, and subject to the rules of evidence within the trial, beyond the trial this material has aroused the interest of artists, publishers, historians, curators and journalists who wish to access and use this material for a wide range of purposes, some of which might be transgressive, dangerous or insensitive.’

Date: 13th May 2015, 6.00-8.00pm

Location: Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, Charles Clore House, 17 Russell Square, London WC1B 5DR

Charge: Free, registration required
