Law Student Research Report on Rape and Sexual Assault

Posted on
A group of students standing in a line each holding a report.

On 20th March, a student authored research report was presented to Rowan Miller, who is CEO of SARSAS (Somerset & Avon Rape and Sexual Abuse Support). The authors are all undergraduates on the LL.B Sexual Offences and Offending: Criminal Justice Responses module. Each year, student volunteers from the module research and write a report for SARSAS staff which explains topical legal policy issues and reforms. During the presentation, Rowan noted how useful and impactful the report will be for her staff and that previous research reports had been widely read by people from across the sector.

The report is an excellent example of how students, working with academic colleagues, can engage with the world outside of UWE and apply specialist, socially useful knowledge to the work of local organisations.

The report authors are: Karishma Boodhun, Charlie Ellis, Abigail Laborero, Hayley Lewis, Molly Mackenzie, Momin Mohamed and Annabelle White.

The report was edited and fact checked by Phil Rumney, Ed Johnston and Anneleise Williams.
