Clifford - LLB(Hons) Law
I help people appeal against injustice
As part of the Pro Bono Innocence Project at UWE, Clifford has been working on the case of a man who has served 20 years in prison for a murder he claims he did not commit.
LLB Law student Clifford came to UWE at the age of 51, having left school without A-levels. Within his first year, and with the support of his tutors, Clifford was transformed into a first class student.
Having exceeded his own expectations he came up with a clear plan for personal and professional development: to help people appeal against injustice.
“Through the Pro Bono Innocence Project at UWE, I've had the opportunity to help a man who has served 20 years in prison for a murder he claims he did not commit. His only hope is that students, working on his behalf, can find something that would allow his case to be referred back to the Court of Appeal. No one else will undertake this work for him. This has involved a commitment of some six hours a week, over and above study time. But if there is anything I can do to help right an injustice, to be a small cog in the wheel, I'll try my best to do it.”
