Jonathan Doak is Associate Dean for Research and Professor of Criminal Justice. He holds a particular interest in non-adversarial justice practices including restorative justice and therapeutic jurisprudence. Jonathan is currently co-investigator on Mapping the Changing Face of Cross-Examination, a mixed methods project exploring the changing nature of advocacy in the Crown Court (with Jackson, Saunders, and Wright). In a separate project with Professor Jane Ching, the authors explore the role of lawyers in restorative justice in the criminal process. Jonathan’s other interests include addressing cultural change within the legal profession, the rights of victims and vulnerable witnesses, and aspects of youth justice and post-conflict justice.

He is happy to receive queries from prospective doctoral students interested in these areas.
