Abstract

Discusses the work of the Cardiff Law School Innocence Project (CLSIP) in reinvestigating allegations of wrongful conviction. Reviews the truth-finding vulnerabilities of the pre-trial process, whether police investigations are always examples of systematic searches for truth, and obstacles to defence lawyers' search for exculpatory materials. Details CLSIP's approach to evaluating investigations and responding to defence or disclosure failures.
