Media and Criminal Justice Studies Network
Understanding the production, distribution and reception of as-live courtroom footage and its impact on public perception of criminal justice.
Cameras are gradually being allowed into courtrooms in England and Wales in a set of legislative changes that mark a historic shift in the meaning of public involvement in the courtroom and the relationship between the judiciary and the media.
Our research community brings together academics from the social sciences, arts and humanities, to understand the production, distribution, and reception of as-live courtroom footage, and, in turn, how courtroom broadcasting might influence public confidence, trust, and knowledge about criminal justice.
This project seeks to establish a major international research network for the cross-disciplinary study of as-live broadcasting of official processes and fora (including courts, tribunals, enquiries).
