We are a small dedicated team supported by teams of experts in different and complementary fields, who all provide pro bono assistance. These include UK barristers who provide legal advice and representation to prisoners under sentence of death; doctors including forensic psychiatrists, psychologists and pathologists, who assess individual prisoners and provide expert reports; and internationally acclaimed academics, criminologists and researchers.
