Law, Crime and History recognises that global public consciousness in the law and its impact on daily lives has reached unprecedented levels. It will appeal not just to academics but also to policy makers, practitioners, and an interested lay readership. This journal seeks to publish material of interest to both the specialist and the non specialist in law, crime and history. It aims to reflect, both in content and in the profile of individuals who write for it, our desire to promote a more global comprehension of the various issues and strategies intrinsic to the study of law, crime and criminal procedure. About SOLON SOLON is a consortium of academics and professionals/practitioners based in a partnership between the Universities of Nottingham Trent, Oxford Brookes, Plymouth, Liverpool John Moores, the West of England and Liverpool Hope (listed in order of joining). SOLON has links to the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS) and Centre for Contemporary British History (CCBH), in the School of Advanced Studies, University of London, as well as to Rainer’s Communities That Care, and with a number of other universities, networks and centres interested in the themes of law, crime and history. SOLON has a network of over 350 members: academics, practitioners and students across a broad range of subjects and representing universities and institutions worldwide. The consortium also works in association with the NCCL Galleries of Justice, the nation’s Museum of Law, based in Nottingham and a holder of important archive resources for the history of law, crime and punishment (including the national Prison Service Collection). Managed by a Board of Directors drawn from the partner institutions, SOLON aims to bring together academics and practitioners across boundaries of disciplines and experience through its website, its conference series such as Experiencing the Law, plus occasional events such as seminars. It has sponsored a number of publications, notably its associated online Journal Law, Crime and History (formerly Crimes and Misdemeanours: Deviance and the Law in Historical Perspective)
