Amicus Information Talk
Wed 19 October 2016, 19:00 – 20:00 BST
Rebecca Saxon is a former Amicus intern, who has kindly agreed to talk about Amicus and about her experience as an intern. She will be giving a 50 minute presentation, followed by 10 minutes of Q+A, so come along to find out more about how you could receive Amicus' US Death Penalty Training, giving you the skills which could take you to the US to volunteer with Amicus.
Amicus is a small legal charity in the UK that helps provide representation for those on death row in the US. Those facing the death penalty often have inadequate legal representation, provided by lawyers who are overworked and underpaid. Amicus’ frontline work seeks to save the lives of those who are denied access to justice. Amicus at Cambridge will be focusing on fundraising to fund this legal representation, as well as hosting talks to raise awareness. By supporting Amicus at Cambridge, you’ll also get the amazing opportunity to attend Amicus’ US Death Penalty Training on US criminal law and procedure, legal research, evidence and professional conduct. This will give you the skills needed to volunteer and intern with Amicus, either in the UK or in the US, so that you can have a direct impact in saving the lives of vulnerable people facing the deepest injustice.
