Unethical people and Miscarriages of Justice

1 Inside Justice: Investigating Miscarriages of Justice

3 nov. 2020

All of our clients say the same thing; ‘I never imagined that in this country I could be wrongly convicted.’ 
 
Inside Justice is a charity which investigates miscarriages of justice and is supported by a wholly unique advisory panel of world-renowned experts who work pro bono to strengthen the criminal justice system. 
 
Our small team of caseworkers receive applications from prisoners who claim they are innocent but have no legal, expert or investigative support. We are also alerted to cases by lawyers who believe an innocent person may have been jailed but can do no more due to Legal Aid funding cuts. 
 
While we spend the majority of our time working with those who have been wrongly convicted, we also carry out policy work and collaborate with universities providing tuition related to live cases. We believe our work is vital in creating a fairer and more transparent justice system for all.

5 A system on its knees? Inside the criminal justice system with the Secret Barrister

16 jul. 2020

It’s rare to get a peek behind the scenes of courtrooms and the people working in them 
 
In a tell-all book, the anonymous author known as The Secret Barrister has painted a picture of a criminal justice system in England and Wales on its knees, while keeping their identity totally secret, even their gender.
 
Now we have attempted to bring their insights out of the shadows – examining real cases that reveal the problems at the heart of the justice system. Delays, cuts and creaking infrastructure, all made worse by the crippling pandemic.
 
In the first in our series, the Secret Barrister examines the story of a victim of assault, who has been left with life-long injuries. Yet the accused were never tried.
 
Filmed before the pandemic, we have disguised the Secret Barrister’s identity and the piece has been voiced by an actor.
