Miscarriages of Justice

We have unrivalled expertise in redressing miscarriages of justice through the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) and appeals to the Court of Appeal.

The CCRC is the public body with statutory responsibility for investigating alleged miscarriages of justice in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It was established by Section 8 of the Criminal Appeal Act 1995 and started work investigating possible miscarriages of justice on 31 March 1997. The CCRC has the power to send, or refer, a case back to an appeal court if it considers that there is a real possibility the court will quash the conviction or reduce the sentence in that case.

If you (or someone you know) have possibly been wrongly convicted of a criminal offence or wrongly sentenced, you may be able to utilise our services to submit an Application to the CCRC and avail of other legal remedies.
