Linda Mulcahy will be speaking at an event organised by The Howard league in support of the launch of a think piece she co-authored which advocates for the abolition of the dock in English and Welsh courtrooms. The aim fo the event is to stimulate debate among practitioners on how to challenge the routine use of the dock for child and adult defendants in criminal proceedings. The publication is the final part of a series of pamphlets that seek to challenge conventional thinking on penal and criminal justice issues. This event will challenge the routine use of the dock in the courtroom and consider how we can counter its use in practice.
