Our Civil Liberties team was recently involved in a high profile case at the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) concerning three offenders who had been jailed indefinitely without being given access to courses which would have aided their rehabilitation.

The ECHR gave judgment in the case of James, Wells and Lee v UK that their human rights had been breached. You can read a press release about the case here: Indeterminate sentences breach human rights.

If you have been convicted of an offence and wish to obtain advice in respect of an appeal, please do contact our Criminal Appeal team on 01942 774344.
