University Lecturer in Criminal Justice, Faculty of Law
Dr Jonathan Rogers is a University Lecturer in Criminal Justice at the University of Cambridge and a co-Deputy Director of the Cambridge Centre for Criminal Justice. He is also a Fellow at Fitzwilliam College. He was formerly an Associate Professor of Criminal Justice at UCL. He is on the Editorial Board of the Criminal Law Review and has served on ad hoc advisory groups at the Law Commission, and was the proposer behind the Commission's recent project on the law om misconduct in public office.
Jonathan also co-directs the Criminal Law Reform Now network, which brings together academics and policymakers to discuss viable proposals for law reform (not necessarily requiring primary legislation) which is not already on the government or the Law Commission's agenda. Their first two projects are on the law concerning computer misuse and private prosecutions.
Most of Jonathan's contemporary writings are in the area of prosecutorial discretion and human rights, including the Code for Crown Prosecutions, prosecutorial guidelines on assisted suicide, time limits
for some historic sexual offences, and how prosecutors might comply with positive obligations under human rights law.
