Top Ten Rating for University Academic

June 2003

A University of Leicester academic has been identified as being among the top 10 in the country in his discipline.

Professor Clive Hollin, of the University’s Division of Forensic Mental Health, is cited by the Independent on Sunday as being among the ten leading forensic psychologists in Britain.

The report, on June 15, is based on information provided by the British Psychological Society. Under the headline, The Top Brass, the report states:

Clive Hollin (50) is Professor of Criminological Psychology at the University of Leicester. He has worked as a psychologist in the prison service and the youth treatment service, and is the author of Psychology and Crime, a best-selling text-book on the subject. He is reported as saying: “To make a difference and to reduce offending is not a bad thing to want to achieve in one’s career.”

Professor Hollin joins another University of Leicester academic to have received this accolade. Professor Eilean Hooper-Greenhill, former Head of the Department of Museum Studies, was also listed among the ten leading people in the museum sector by the Independent on Sunday.

Those to reach this 'top ten' in the museum world were chosen by their peers.
