Whelton Hiutin Lawyer Educates High School Students on Civil Rights

A longtime volunteer with Innocence Canada, Malini Vijaykumar accompanied fellow volunteer Lauren Wildgoose (U of T) to Thornhill Secondary School on November 3 to talk to a Grade 12 Law class about wrongful convictions and civil rights. The students learned about the causes of wrongful convictions, past case studies of wrongly convicted people in Canada, and what their rights are during interactions with the police.

As Innocence Canada’s PBSC Lawyer Supervisor, Malini travels to various high schools around Ontario with Innocence Canada volunteer presenters to educate students and community members about their civil rights.
