The Miscarriages of Justice Project

The Miscarriages of Justice Project works on cases of individuals who have exhausted their appeals process and have maintained their innocence. Every year, two to three projects are run concurrently, each consisting of a group of eight researchers. The aim of the groups are to look through evidence, case files and witness statements in the hope of finding new evidence that can be presented to the Criminal Case Review Commission (CCRC).

As a researcher you will be asked to dedicate approximately 3-5 hours a week to analyse court documents, eyewitness statements, forensic reports and CCTV footage. The role also includes attendance at group meetings and independent research.
