"Wrongful convictions happen. It’s
what we do about them that matters.
Watch this short film about our work."
Tom Conti, Actor and Inside Justice Trustee

Established in 2010, Inside Justice conducts
casework investigations on behalf of people
who claim they’ve been wrongly convicted

We provide free access to experts and lawyers
and identify and challenge systemic failings

Inside Justice is a registered charity led by Louise Shorter, former producer/director of BBC TV’s long-running miscarriage of justice investigative series Rough Justice. Our casework team is run on a lean overhead which harnesses the power of an army of expert volunteers.

We receive applications predominantly from prisoners or from their family and friends. We are also alerted to cases by lawyers who believe an innocent person may have been jailed but who can do no more due to Legal Aid funding cuts.

Why we need
your help

We believe everybody deserves justice.

When justice fails and someone is wrongly convicted it destroys lives and trust.

We do the work we do because a wrongful conviction leaves dangerous people at large to create more victims. This work is much needed but hard to fund. Please make a donation if you can.
