In this Wednesday webinar, we will consider the pressing issue of the Australian Criminal Justice system. Melanie Schwartz, Deputy Head of School in the Faculty of Law, UNSW will be talking about Justice Reinvestment – a cutting edge new strategy being employed in communities in Australia to answer the questions: how should we deal with our overflowing prisons? How can we work with places where lots of people go to prison, to address the underlying issues that lead to offending behaviour?

Melanie Schwartz is Deputy Head of School in the Faculty of Law, UNSW. She teaches and convenes Criminal Law, Advanced Criminal Law and teaches into the Indigenous programs in the Faculty. Her research is in criminal justice, prisons, access to justice and Indigenous legal issues and includes a number of large Australian Research Council grants. In 2018, she was awarded the UNSW Presidents Award for Embraces Diversity, and in 2017 was runner up in the Respect category. Between 2015-2018 Melanie chaired the Law Faculty’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee. She is currently Deputy Academic Lead for the UNSW Athena SWAN gender equity scheme.
