Professor Carolyn Hoyle is leading a small team of researchers working on projects relating to wrongful convictions.

Her research on the Criminal Cases Review Commission (with Dr Mai Sato) is due to be published by Oxford University Press in 2018. For further details see here.

Her research on the experiences of those wrongly accused of abuse in occupations of trust with Dr Ros Burnett and Naomi-Ellen Speechley is now published in a report. For further details and to read the full report see here.

Professor Hoyle supervises two doctoral theses; one by Emma Burtt on the pains of imprisonment as experienced by those claiming to be victims of miscarriages of justice, the other by Laura Tilt on the experiences of the wrongly convicted after their convictions are overturned by the Court of Appeal and they are released from prison.
