Pro bono Initiatives

Innocence Project London

In the UK, students at the University of Greenwich on the IPL learn through the “innocence project model” of clinical legal education which developed in the US. The the first innocence project was founded in 1992. They analyse the evidence that led to conviction, develop legal theories that could reopen the case and search for factual evidence of innocence. Both law and criminology students can apply to work on the IPL as volunteers or for Criminology students they can apply as part of a credit bearing module.
