“Mark was one of my personal tutees and also a student in two of my classes during 2008. I would describe him as articulate, intelligent, ambitious, mature, charming, sociable and likeable. He was a keen student in ‘Copyright & Design’, who regularly contributed to class discussion and seemed very interested in this area of law.

Visits will either be on a Tuesday or a Thursday, at 9:45 or 13:45, for an hour.
Mark explores how growing up in an environment of secrecy may have ultimately led to his wrongful conviction. With mistakes creeping in at critical points in the police investigation, did Mark really get a fair trial?
And, with such clear power imbalances between citizen and state, what does 'equality of arms' really mean for suspects defending themselves from positions of vulnerability? ... See MoreSee Less
Prison visits are now starting up again, but friends and family are banned from hugging or any physical contact, and separated by screens, visits have also been cut to just an hour. Mark is asking people not to visit him until these restrictions are lifted. He doesn't feel it would be fair on you to make such long journeys for so short a time and under such conditions. ...
