University of Leicester to host Chief Inspector of Prisons for public lecture on Thursday 13 December

A public lecture at the University of Leicester is to explore just how ‘tough’ and ‘intelligent’ prisons really are.

Nick Hardwick, the current Chief Inspector of Prisons, will give a public lecture on 'What's Prison Really Like?' on Thursday 13 December at 5.15pm at the Rattray Lecture Theatre on the main University of Leicester Campus.

It is part of the Department of Criminology's Scarman Lecture Series.

The lecture will use the findings of the independent inspection system to compare some of the myths about prison with the realities and examine how prisons are coping with the demand to deliver improved outcomes at a time of rising populations and reducing budgets.

'What's Prison Really Like?' will take place on Thursday 13 December at 5.15pm at the Rattray Lecture Theatre on the main University of Leicester Campus. It is free and open to the public.
