Lecturer of the School of Law, Dr Louise Hewitt is also Director of the Innocence Project London which is a pro bono organisation where law and criminology students work alongside Louise and lawyers. They all give their time on a pro bono basis to investigate the cases of alleged wrongful convictions of people who have been convicted but who have exhausted the appeals process and are maintaining their innocence and often those individuals are still in prison.
By recording this podcast, Louise is seeking to create greater public awareness that wrongful convictions happen in the UK, asking the audience to question the system and be aware of how more often than not we all stand on a very fragile line on the right side of justice.
“You don't always have to have a plan. You can seize the opportunities. You can fall into what you're doing and that plan can literally just exist alongside you and develop alongside you until the point that you realise that it's actually crystallised and you're doing what you enjoy, and you're doing something really worthwhile.”
