The next meeting for Sociology and Criminology Society is on Tuesday 11th November in room CBA1.078/079, between 1pm and 2pm.

This meeting will debate whether particular illegal acts, should be made legal. Three main aspects will be debated:

What do you think would be the consequences of making these currently illegal acts, legal?

1. Prostitution – Should brothels be legalised in Britain?

2. Drug Taking – Drugs such as cannabis, have been known to aid medical conditions such as cancer and multiple sclerosis. Should certain drugs be made legal and easily available?

3. Euthanasia – Repeatedly we find in the news, like recently, cases in which individuals wish their life to end, often for reasons of ill health. However, this act could end up with a prison sentence. Who should decide the future of an individual, the state, medical professionals, or the individual themself?

The last meeting was really good fun and insightful, so we hope to see you there on Tuesday. The more the merrier!!
