Following our successful partnership with CARG (Covid-19 Anti-racism Group) in hosting the first CPS-led webinar in September, we are bringing the second webinar to the Chinese community on 9 December 2020.
In this webinar, the CPS will focus on the legal framework for Hate Crime in England and Wales and the role of the CPS. The presentation will cover all aspects of the law including: key definitions, who the law applies to, specific offences, what offences look like in practice and how hate crime sentence uplifts work. Examples from CPS casework will be used to illustrate how the law works.
Please register by sending an email to [email protected], clearly stating the name of participant and capacity (position & name of organisation/ private citizen). We will respond with a webinar link two days before the event.
The contents of this webinar is required knowledge for anyone seeking to advise victims of hate crime, and for those who are trying to design services for communities to enable them to better tackle Covid-related hate.
If you have an interest in understanding how the criminal justice system delivers in terms of hate crime investigation and sentencing, this webinar is for you.
