Event: launch of new report on maturity in magistrates' courts

Tuesday 16 February 2021 at 11:00-12.30 GMT

We would like to invite you to an online webinar launching a new report by the Magistrates Association on maturity in the magistrates’ court, published following a comprehensive research project funded by Barrow Cadbury Trust.

The report brings together the key findings from the Magistrates Association research into magistrates’ understanding of maturity and how it is currently handled within magistrates’ courts. The research included a survey of magistrates, a series of focus groups with magistrates, and a roundtable with other court participants.

The speakers at the event will be:

- Laurie Hunte, Criminal Justice Programme Manager, Barrow Cadbury Trust

- Dr Helen Wakeling, Chartered Research Psychologist, Evidence-Based Practice Team, HMPPS

- George Moody, who carried out the research on behalf of the Magistrates Association

There will be short presentations by each speaker followed by an opportunity for questions and discussion.
