Hello Students!

Welcome to the #SmartJusticeGeneration resource hub.

Many who study (and teach) subjects such as Criminology, Law and Social Care have told us that our resources are a useful learning aid – so we’ve put them all in one place for you – all FREE to access!

These resources explain and demonstrate both the factual processes within the Scottish justice system and the human stories that come from it.

We’d love to hear your thoughts about these resources, or ideas for future ones. Please give us a shout on Twitter or Instagram with any feedback or suggestions.

Your voice is vital in helping to shape the future of justice in Scotland.

Thanks for joining the #SmartJusticeGeneration!
