Sheffield University. Official opening of Bartolome Lodge, School of Law

Obviously as I have said before it is great that more Universities are getting involved with Innocent projects. Michael Naughton, Senior lecturer at Bristol Uni' founded the Innocence Network UK  and their work has been recognised so much. It is a fact that we need such projects because the system is fraught with so many difficulties and the CCRC seems to be under scrutiny.  However on Friday 25th March there is an official opening of another  Innocent Project which will allow law students at Sheffield to investigate alleged miscarriages of justice.  I have been invited to speak at the opening and look forward to meeting those who have been responsible for this venture.

It was great to see Eddie Gilfoyle speaking at the House of Lords yesterday.....he knows I wish him well.   http://tinyurl.com/64ts8e3
