Summary

The conference will explore critical aspects of how the justice system currently serves those autistic people who might experience it – as suspects, offenders, witnesses and professionals. The consequences of failure can be far reaching and with serious consequences for all concerned. It is essential that best practice is understood, developed and applied. This will include representation, communication, interviews and options for dealing with autistic people at each stage of the criminal justice process.

We will learn from a range of speakers with first-hand expertise to develop our understanding and importantly our practice. This will include prominent figures from the law, including law enforcement and other areas of the justice system, academia and from autistic people and their families. We are delighted that award winning solicitor Karen Todner has agreed to give the opening keynote.
