SWMS Lawyer Published in UBC Law Review

SWMS lawyer Malini Vijaykumar was published in the January 2018 issue of the University of British Columbia Law Review. Her article, titled “A Crisis of Conscience: Miscarriages of Justice and Indigenous Defendants in Canada”, is available for purchase here. The article discusses the factors that contribute to wrongful convictions of Indigenous people in the Canadian legal system, and offers possible solutions based on interviews with Indigenous legal experts. It was published with the assistance of Innocence Canada, a Toronto-based organization that aims to exonerate the wrongly convicted and prevent miscarriages of justice through public legal education.
