In 2011 we formed the Innocence Project at the School of Law at the University of Greenwich with three main aims. Firstly, to investigate cases of miscarriages of justice. Secondly, to provide the opportunity for undergraduate students to work on real cases and thirdly to overturn miscarriages of justice and to free innocent people from prison.
I am very proud of the project and in particular the students who have worked on the project. The students continued dedication and tireless work has been inspiring and they should be proud of themselves that they are contributing to a movement which in effect sets out to change lives.
We are no longer part of the disbanded INUK but an independent innocence project which means we can now take cases directly from clients. In June 2014 we became a member of the Innocence Network which is the international organisation which governs innocence projects worldwide. We are currently the only UK member and one of only ten projects which is based outside the US. We are proud to be part of the "innocence movement" which stretches across Europe to the US and Latin America.
We do however need support. All the staff that work for Innocence Project London, do so on a free pro bono basis. We have a small budget which kindly comes from the School of Law at the University of Greenwich that pays for our office, stationary, phone bills, copies of transcripts etc. If you would like to donate or sponsor us to pay for conference trips (or this website) and to further our work on the project then please contact us.
