Survey on post-conviction retention and disclosure of evidence.

We are law students in the Student Law Office at Northumbria University working with the charity Inside Justice. We are gathering testimony from legal practitioners, campaigners and prisoners (past and present) on issues surrounding the post-conviction retention and disclosure of evidence.  

The survey is anonymous, but we will also be conducting interviews. If you would be happy to be interviewed, please complete contact details at the end of the survey or contact our supervisor, Prof Carole McCartney (carole.mccartney@northumbria.ac.uk) directly. 

We are hugely grateful for you taking the time to complete our survey for this important project.
