University of Bristol Innocence Project

The University of Bristol Innocence Project (UoBIP) is the first dedicated student-led Innocence Project in the UK, a pro bono legal clinic which teaches law through exposure to 'live-clients'. Established in January 2005, it was officially launched to coincide with the 2005 National Pro Bono week. The Project, which is part of the Innocence Network UK , is a collaborative venture of undergraduate law students working under academic supervision and guidance from local criminal solicitors, Kelcey and Hall. It is important to note that the UoBIP does not give legal advice as such. Rather, the solicitors provide possible avenues for further exploration. The students then investigate individual cases in pursuit of grounds for possible appeal and/or an application to the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC).
