Emma McClure, on forensic faux pas

Last night, Merseyside Skeptics Society member and prison lawyer Emma McClure gave a fascinating, funny and frightening talk on the way forensics can be misused or mishandled by police investigations, and the terrible miscarriages of justice that can occur as a result. It was a brilliant talk, in front of a packed audience, and a hugely enjoyable evening.

Given that Emma is one of our own members, and therefore had minimal expenses, we decided to use our normal collection as an opportunity to fundraise for a worthy cause: Young Legal Aid Lawyers Liverpool.

Young Legal Aid Lawyers Liverpool is an organisation close to Emma’s heart, campaigning to ensure justice is accessible for all, not just for those who can afford it. Due to the generosity of our members and attendees at last night’s event, we are able to donate £260 to the group.

We are delighted to support this important cause, and would like to thank once again everyone who donated last night.
