The Centre for Criminal Law and Criminal Justice has been awarded a grant of € 26,700 by the German Volkswagen Foundation under its highly competitive programme "Deutsch plus - Wissenschaft ist mehrsprachig".

The grant is meant to cover the costs for the translation of Professor Thomas Vormbaum's book on the history of German criminal law, "Einführung in die Strafrechtsgeschichte", 2nd ed., 2011, into English. The translation will be overseen by Professor Michael Bohlander.
