Congratulations to our colleague Dr Mark Coen who has secured a Visiting Fellowship at Oxford University. Mark will be a Visiting Fellow at St Catherine's College in Hilary Term 2022 (January to March) where he will work on a number of projects relating to the history of trial by jury. One project will examine how the first women jurors were depicted in popular culture one hundred years ago while the second will explore the drafting and operation of the Juries (Protection) Acts in the Irish Free State.

Dr Coen's research on jury trials has been published in prestigious journals including the Law and History Review, the American Journal of Legal History, the Criminal Law Review, the Human Rights Law Review, the International Journal of Evidence and Proof and Legal Studies.
