Criminal case review

The case review component of the Criminal Justice Review Project is driven by students, under the careful guidance of senior legal practitioners and scholars. Students and scholars are drawn from a variety of disciplines such as law, criminology, forensic science, and forensic psychology. These multi-disciplinary teams work collaboratively on a pro-bono basis, reviewing cases where wrongful conviction is claimed.

Law reform research

The Criminal Justice Review Project is committed to the generation of research examining how the sources of miscarriage of justice facilitate error (in isolation or in combination) at each stage of the criminal justice process. The purpose of this research is to remedy error by facilitating change to policy and practice and by seeking law reform. The research conducted will contribute to the generation of theoretically informed relevant knowledge that informs decision making.
